First release: 15 commandos and fighters in the Commando Brigade went into solitary confinement after being exposed to a verified Corona patient last week. The patient, an officer in the Commando Brigade's headquarters, was in the vicinity of the soldiers, so they were sent for a fortnight's isolation.
Commando Brigade Commander Colonel Kobi Heller was exposed to the patient for a short period of time, initially fearing he would be forced to stay in solitary confinement, but after an epidemiologic and corona test whose negative results were decided not to be isolated.
IDF confirmed the details: "Last week, a verified patient was discovered in the brigade, following which 15 soldiers and officers entered the home. As a result, the division's service was not impaired. "
This morning (Sunday) it was reported in the IDF waves that the commander of the General Staff Patrol, Col. Y., his deputy, and dozens of unit commanders were sent to isolation after a soldier in the unit was diagnosed with a corona patient. The unit commander and his deputy decided to isolate themselves in the unit until they received a corona test. In this case, too, the unit's operational competence was not compromised.
