TORONTO (AP) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is quarantining himself at home after his wife exhibited flu-like symptoms.
Trudeau's office said Thursday that Sophie Grégoire Trudeau returned from a speaking engagement in Britain and had mild flu-like symptoms, including a low fever late Wednesday night.
She is being tested for the COVID-19 disease and is awaiting results.
“She is self-isolating at home awaiting test results, and her symptoms have since subsided,” a statement from the PM’s office says.
According to the statement, a doctor has advised the PM to continue daily activities while self-monitoring, given that he has no symptoms himself.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the Prime Minister is opting to self-isolate and work from home until receiving Sophie's results," wrote Trudeau’s office.
