COVID-19 hits Canadian PM Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tested positive for COVID-19, he revealed in a post on Twitter Monday morning.

However, he said he is “feeling fine” and will continue working remotely for the week.

This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m feeling fine – and I’ll continue to work remotely this week while following public health guidelines. Everyone, please get vaccinated and get boosted.

Trudeau had said on Jan. 27 that he was isolating after being notified of an exposure. The Canadian Press later reported one of his children had tested positive.

Trudeau is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and received his booster dose on Jan. 4, 2022.

He has said previously that he would inform Canadians if he ever tested positive for the virus.

His wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, tested positive for COVID-19 in the early days of the pandemic.

She contracted the virus after returning from a UK trip.
