For the second time this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tested positive for COVID-19.
The prime minister, who was travelling recently in the U.S. for the Summit of the Americas, tweeted Monday morning that he feels “okay” and will be isolating according to public health guidelines.
The fully vaccinated Trudeau previously tested positive in January of this year, as did two of his children.
I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating. I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots. So, if you haven’t, get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves.
Trudeau met with various world leaders while in Los Angeles for the summit, including U.S. President Joe Biden.
White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz told Bloomberg that Biden isn’t considered a close contact of the prime minister.
