A man who arrived at a Jerusalem synagogue on Sunday despite having been infected with the coronavirus was ejected from the site and fined NIS 5,000.
Israel Police said they had received tip off that the man was in the synagogue in the Kiryat Yuval neighborhood of Jerusalem ahead of the start of the Yom Kippur fast at sundown.
The man, who was supposed to be in isolation, was separated from the rest of the congregation by officers and escorted back to his home, the police said.
