Ministers Elkin, Avitan, Abucasis, advisors enter isolation

Following an epidemiological investigation conducted by Health Ministry representatives, it appears that Ministers Ze'ev Elkin, Yaakov Avitan, Orly Levy Abucasis and a number of their advisors were required to enter home isolation in light of their exposure to Minister Rafi Peretz, who tested coronavirus positive.

The isolation of the ministers is expected to end next Sunday.

The Knesset emphasizes that Minister Yaakov Litzman also met with Minister Peretz, but according to Health Ministry instructions, in view of the fact that he has already contracted the virus, he need not enter isolation.
