The government decided today (Wednesday) in a telephone poll to accept the recommendation of the Ministry of Health and Corona projector, Prof. Roni Gamzo, to close the education system tomorrow, including schools, kindergartens and daycare centers, in light of the significant increase in infection.

This, after the graduation was supposed to start on Friday, the eve of the holiday.

However, the continuation of special education activities and youth at risk remained unchanged.



The government's approval comes after a source in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's entourage announced last night that he was considering closing the education system today.

This, following the recommendation of Gamzo, who addressed a letter to Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and Education Minister Yoav Galant yesterday regarding the activity of the education system.

"All the professionals are behind this recommendation," Gamzo wrote to Edelstein and Galant.

"The government made the wrong decision contrary to our recommendations."
