A student in the Katzir High School in Holon has been diagnosed with coronavirus.

A full 120 students and six teachers will be in quarantine for 14 days, and will not return to school.

Meanwhile, the Jerusalem municipality has announced that all of its schools will open on Sunday, other than the Hebrew Gymnasium, where over 100 students and staff members have been diagnosed with the disease.

First-degree family members of the students at the Gymnasium who were diagnosed over the past two days have been asked to contact their health funds in order to receive referrals for coronavirus tests at the drive-in testing station at Teddy Stadium.

Meanwhile, the temporary order that there is no requirement to attend school is still in effect.
