Despite the warnings and despite requests from rabbis to prefer individual prayer over public prayer on the Tishrei holidays due to the corona plague, it turns out that not many were heard to do so in Ashkelon. Many residents visited the synagogues in the city and now they are required to go into isolation because those synagogues were also visited by those who were later discovered to be Corona patients.
