Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said he will enter quarantine along with his close advisers. Netanyahu’s aide on Knesset affairs tested positive for coronavirus on Monday. The PMO said the step was a precaution and is being taken even before the epidemiological investigation has been concluded.
Also Netanyahu’s spokesperson Shir Cohen, Director of Prime Minister’s Office Asher Hayoun and political spokesperson Naor Yahia will enter voluntary self-quarantine after Knesset Affairs Advisor Rivka Paluch tested positive for COVID-19.
Paluch was in the Knesset Thursday during the vote for Knesset speaker. It is still unclear which legislators she had come into contact with.
