Hayman and the other officers will be in quarantine until next week and “will continue to maintain a regular schedule as much as possible,” an IDF statement says.

All of the officers feel well and aren’t displaying symptoms of COVID-19, according to the IDF, and are set to soon be tested for the coronavirus.
