RAPAPORT... The Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) closed its trading floor on Wednesday after a member who had been inside the hall tested positive for Covid-19.

The bourse has already disinfected the room in preparation for it to reopen on Sunday, an IDE spokesperson told Rapaport News Thursday. The trading floor shut initially on March 15 because of the global pandemic, and restarted on May 24 with social distancing in place.

Under the rules, no more than 150 people can enter the trading floor per day. People must keep two meters away from each other, wear face masks, and sign a daily health declaration.
