The Ministry of Health in Israel announced that as of June 15th, the indoor mask regulations will be appealed. So, besides isolation/quarantine, there will effectively be no COVID-19 restrictions for people inside Israel.
Many people wonder which health recommendations will remain after COVID-19 is gone. Will people still clean their hands regularly with alcohol gel? Will people wear masks when they are sick or in medical offices? And will PCR testing still be required to detect other viruses?
Most people do not realize that the PCR test has been around for a while. PCR tests are commonly administered to detect microbial pathogens and diseases, including genetic and autoimmune diseases. PCR tests are relatively fast, eliminating the need for unnecessary procedures to identify a virus. PCR tests are cost-effective relative to other testing options. PCR testing is considered the "gold standard" for identifying the COVID-19 virus and other diseases because of its speed and accuracy. They are likely to remain even after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended.
When do you need to get a PCR test?
Most countries still require those who enter the country to do a PCR test, proving that they do not have COVID-19. Flights also require people to have a negative PCR test before flying to limit the spread of infection.
People also need to do PCR tests if exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
How and where can we get PCR tests?
Israel has one of the lowest rates of COVID-19 in the world. Therefore, PCR tests are no longer available unless an individual is experiencing medical symptoms of COVID-19. People exiting Israel who require a PCR test for COVID-19 are required to be tested through an approved private company.
Many labs do PCR tests, but they aren't always conveniently located, and the results take a few days to come back.
EMA Care is happy to announce the launch of our PCR testing. This service includes at-home/on-location testing at the lowest prices! Our service is affordable, convenient, and fast.
Over the past few months, we have helped many people enter the country and get PCR tests. Our average time for PCR results is within 24 hours, but usually much less. So, if you are coming to Israel, you might want to get a very convenient test at home/hotel prior to your flight home for a great price!

Thank you for the zoom (and all your updates). It was great. I wish the news was like that. Straight forward, factual, unemotional. Bravo to both of you ladies!!
My experience with Ema Care has been so positive that I wanted to share it in case it could help someone else. Eight days ago my daughter, a Shanah Bet student, called to say she wasn’t feeling well and had symptoms of Covid-19. I was put in touch with an Infectious Disease specialist who recommended Ema Care. I reached Dr. Eliana Aaron easily and signed my daughter up. The next morning, Ema Care gave my daughter a telehealth exam and provided her with prescriptions, as well as a list of...
