OTTAWA (NEWS 1130) – The prime minister said Wednesday his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, is feeling much better after being diagnosed two weeks ago with COVID-19.
Justin Trudeau also said he and his children are well at home in Ottawa and remain free of coronavirus symptoms.
However, Trudeau did not reveal whether he would be coming out of self-isolation now that his 14-day period has ended, adding only he’ll follow public health protocols.
Earlier Wednesday, the federal government imposed a mandatory two-week isolation period on all people returning to Canada under the Quarantine Act to help stem further spread of the novel coronavirus.
As well, the Senate passed an emergency federal aid package of $107 billion to help Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gregoire Trudeau initially showed mild, flu-like symptoms after returning from London.
We’re doing everything we can to support you right now. Because at a time like this, you should be focused on what matters most – your health and the health of those you love. That’s exactly why we’re announcing the new Canada Emergency Response Benefit today. ⤵️
