Knesset calls on MKs who were near PM aide with virus to enter quarantine

The Knesset is calling on lawmakers and parliamentary workers who were in close proximity to an adviser of Prime Minister Netanyahu who tested positive for the coronavirus to enter quarantine.

The Knesset Guard has examined security camera footage from the parliament building and found that Rivka Paluch was there three times in the past two weeks — on March 16, 23 and 26.

Netanyahu’s office said earlier today that the prime minister and his advisers would enter quarantine after Paluch was confirmed to be infected with the virus.
