21 Knesset workers, as well as United Torah Judaism MK Rabbi Meir Porush, were instructed to self-isolate after an epidemiological investigation showed they had come into contact with a security guard who had tested positive for the Omicron coronavirus variant, the Knesset said in a statement Thursday.

The security guard was in the Knesset for the last time on Sunday before testing positive for the virus.
