Yisrael Hayom reported that a soldier in the battalion threw a birthday party at a pool for herself over the last weekend. The soldier will likely face disciplinary action when she recovers.
One of the guests at the party was a patient who had tested positive for the coronavirus. The patient came into contact with the soldier who threw the party as well as her friends.

The soldiers are in isolation at an IDF base on the Golan Heights.
