Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced on Monday (Jan. 31) that he has tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. The infection comes less than four weeks after Trudeau received a COVID-19 booster shot at an Ottawa pharmacy.
“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.
Trudeau and his family have been isolating for several days after being exposed to the virus. At least one of his children also has tested positive, according to the Prime Minister’s office.
The family has also been relocated to a secret location to hide as tens of thousands of people stand with the Canadian trucker convoy in protest against the government’s COVID-19 vaccination policy.
