The wife of Canadian Prime Minister Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, has tested positive for the new coronavirus.

This was announced by the office the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday night.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau is said to be experiencing the symptoms of the Coronavirus and would remain in isolation while her husband is also in isolation and working from home although tested negative.

Trudeau’s wife issued a statement thanking those who have reached out.

“Although I’m experiencing uncomfortable symptoms of the virus, I will be back on my feet soon,” she said. “Being in quarantine at home is nothing compared to other Canadian families who might be going through this and for those facing more serious health concerns.”

I have some additional news to share this evening. Unfortunately, the results of Sophie’s COVID-19 test are positive. Therefore, she will be in quarantine for the time being. Her symptoms remain mild and she is taking care of herself and following the advice of our doctor.

I am feeling fine & I’m not exhibiting any symptoms of the virus, but I will also be following the advice of our doctor and I will continue to self-isolate for now. During that time, as I did today, I’ll continue to work from home and conduct meetings via video & teleconference.

Tomorrow, I will be speaking with Indigenous leaders and premiers from across the country to coordinate our response to the outbreak and to talk about next steps to keep Canadians safe and limit the impact of COVID-19 on our economy.

I encourage all Canadians to follow the advice of our medical professionals – you can get the latest at:
