Health Minister Yuli Edelstein instructed his ministry Tuesday to overturn the requirement for quarantine in special hotels, for travelers returning from overseas.

“Every returnee from abroad who is allowed to enter the country must do an immediate coronavirus test and enter home isolation for two weeks, or for ten days if another test is conducted on the ninth day,” Edelstein said.
