Special Update

A student who was diagnosed as an asymptomatic COVID-19 patient was transferred earlier this evening to isolation outside the Technion campus.
The student returned from abroad on April 30th and was sent to a state-sponsored hotel for isolation according to regulations. On May 7th the student returned to his dorm apartment on campus with the approval of his HMO.
Earlier this evening, as it became clear that the student had been diagnosed as an asymptomatic COVID-19 patient, he was transferred to a designated hotel for isolation.
The Technion operates in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s guidelines and therefore as a precautionary measure, anyone who has been in direct contact with the student has been notified and instructed to enter isolation immediately. We are in constant contact with the Ministry of Health and will update as necessary.
