Prime Minister Naftali Bennett tests positive for the coronavirus, the premier’s spokesperson says.

The statement says the prime minister is feeling well and will continue to work from home.

Bennett will hold a situational assessment this morning on last night’s terror attack with the participation of Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Internal Security Minister Omer Barlev, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi, Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar, police chief Kobi Shabtai and other officials.

Bennett attended a meeting in Hadera last night after the attack and was wearing a mask in the officially released photograph.

Earlier this month, Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu contracted the virus.
