I have seen a few mentions of quarantine upon arrival, what does that mean exactly?
Israel has a strict quarantine requirement when coming back from abroad or after having come into extended contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. During the quarantine period you will be kept in isolation with the other participants in your apartment. You will not be able to leave the apartment for the length of the quarantine for any reason except in case of emergency.
How will we receive living essentials during quarantine?
You will be provided with food and basic living essentials in your apartment upon arrival.
Do I need to purchase my own health insurance?
No, the program covers limited health insurance that includes COVID-19 medical needs. The insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions. If you have a pre-existing condition you may want to purchase additional coverage.
