Where can I get fast corona tests? The government decided last weekend that starting this week, children between the ages of 3 and 12, who cannot be vaccinated, will be required to present a negative corona test at the entrance to the gatherings according to the expanded green label outline. The tests, which will be funded indefinitely by the state, will be deployed by MDA at 150 different sites across the country starting this coming Wednesday.
As part of the government’s decision to expand the green label, children’s parents will be required to present a negative corona test valid 24 hours before arriving at the gathering center, including: cultural and sports events, hotels, gyms, restaurants, cafes, bars, academic institutions, prayer rooms and conferences.
