Prime Minister Naftali Bennett tests negative for COVID in a PCR test, says the Prime Minister’s Office.

Bennett, who tested negative via a rapid antigen test earlier this morning, exited the cabinet meeting on the Golan Heights early, after finding out that his daughter tested positive for COVID.

The Prime Minister’s Office says that everyone else in the Bennett family also tested negative, except for his son, who will take an additional test due to a fault in the sample.

Bennett will remain in quarantine at the moment out of an abundance of caution, says the PMO.
