Question:

Is Metzitzah still required during this pandemic in Eretz Yisroel. Grandson’s bris iyH on Thursday

Answer:

Mezitza is still required, and in fact many mohalim in Eretz Yisroel are doing it with their mouth, as numerous doctors argue that it is not dangerous, and that it doesn’t cause spread of the virus. (If it does or it doesn’t is not our issue now, and you can speak to your doctor about it). Even those who are careful not to do it by mouth, still do it with a syringe.
