Will the new Knesset’s swearing-in be affected by new ban on gatherings?

It is not yet clear whether the swearing-in ceremony for the new Knesset on Monday will be affected by the new decree against gatherings of over 100 people in enclosed spaces.

Netanyahu noted in his comments that there will be exceptions to the rule in areas of public need, but it is not known whether this will include parliament.
