A number of MKs, including Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, entered quarantine after coming into to close contact with the city of Merhavim’s mayor, who recently tested positive for the coronavirus.
Other Knesset members include the Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi and MK’s Ben Barak and Alon Schuster.
The MK’s came into contact with Merhavim’s mayor in a meeting held on Sunday. Although the meeting adhered to restrictions and criteria demanded by the coronavirus situation, obtaining proper distance and avoiding contact, the MK’s are going into quarantine in order to further uphold Health Ministry guidelines.
Others who were present at the meeting have put themselves into self isolation as well, following the announcement that Mervahim mayor tested positive for the coronavirus.
Several of the attendees have announced their intentions to continue performing their civil duty from home during the two week period of self-isolation.
