    A new website, called "100 meters of isolation," seeks to provide assistance to all those who are unsure how far they get away from their place of residence.
    The site, developed by Amos Maron and Danny Haknin, is quite easy to use. All it takes is for the user to switch the location settings on either smartphone or a computer and the accompanying Google map will show just how far can a person wander off.
    For those who don't wish to turn on the location settings, the site has the option to enter the address manually. Although the map displayed on the website is in English, the address can be typed in both English and Hebrew.
    The site also provides satellite images recently added to Google Earth to offer a clearer view of the user’s current location.

    The new stricter measures went into effect on Wednesday evening. The new steps are set to further restrict the movement of Israelis, effectively keeping the people in their homes except for emergency situations.
    Among the new restrictions is a ban on public venturing further than 100 meters from home. The exceptions to this order include restocking on food and medicine, urgent doctor's appointment, blood donation, legal obligations, protest, provision of medical assistance to someone in need and other emergency commitments.
