Specific antibody/serology tests have been approved to exempt people from domestic quarantine.

Antibody testing has been available for months, until recently the testing was not valid for exempting people from quarantine in Israel.  The Diasorin and Abbott tests, the 2 most common tests available in Israel are each not valid individually, but combined they are valid. There are no labs in the country that have both tests, and therefore people would require 2 separate lab tests for validation. EMA Care has advocated for people who want testing to wait until there was a tangible benefit: exemption from quarantine. We are only offering testing now that there is a valid way to test and exempt people from unnecessary quarantine.
