A teacher from Rehovot tested positive for the coronavirus after coming contact with two classrooms of students, as well as school employees. All faculty members and the 52 students who came in contact with her will go into self-isolation, N12 reported on Friday. As a result of the incident, the school will remain closed for two weeks, in accordance with the Health Ministry's guidelines that instruct anyone near a confirmed COVID-19 patient quarantine for 14 days. On Thursday, the government approved the full re-opening of schools across the country, in accordance with compliance with all personal hygiene rules.School buses will begin operating in a limited capacity on Sunday and will gradually increase activity as local authorities are ready. This was previously a concern as some feared the inability to have school buses operate safely would delay the re-opening of schools. Later on Friday, Ynet reported that teacher's assistant in a Tel Aviv elementary school was diagnosed with coronavirus, forcing seven students and their teacher to go into isolation for 6 days. In order to prevent such a thing from occurring in the future, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai ordered tests for the educational staff in the city with the help of Ichilov Hospital.
