After Ambassador’s Zuckerman’s meeting yesterday with Minister of Transportation Lucian Bode we were advised that Minister Bode tested positive for corona virus. Ambassador Zuckerman is not deemed to have been a contact pursuant to applicable guidelines. Out of an abundance of caution Ambassador Zuckerman will not have any in person meetings until he is tested for corona virus this weekend. The Ambassador has no Covid symptoms and is in good health.

We wish Minister Bode well and a speedy recovery.
