Public Security Minister Amir Ohana will be in isolation until next Sunday after meeting with the commander of the Border Police who was diagnosed with coronavirus.

"According to the Ministry of Health's instructions, only exposure to a verified patient at a distance of less than two meters for a period of more than 15 minutes requires isolation. Minister Ohana met with the Border Police Commander twice in the past two weeks, none of which met the above description," Ohana’s office said.

"At the same time, and in order to minimize risks, it was decided following consultation with the Director General of the Ministry of Health that Minister Ohana should be in isolation until next Sunday."

Ohana underwent a coronavirus test over the weekend which came back negative.
