(CMR) Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and at least one of his children have tested positive for COVID-19. “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 tweeted on Monday.
Trudeau and his family have been isolating for several days after being exposed to the virus. They have also been relocated to an undisclosed location as a precaution as rowdy protests continue in Ottawa by those opposing health restrictions, CNN reported.
Trudeau said last Thursday that he was going into isolation for five days after one of his three children tested positive for COVID-19.
The announcement followed a weekend of protests in Canada's capital, Ottawa, against vaccine mandates, masks, and lockdowns. Some demonstrators traveled in truck convoys and parked on the streets around Parliament Hill, blocking traffic.
