The Prime Minister has since then been working from home.

This is a precautionary measure advised for people who are yet to show any symptoms but have been in contact with someone that is infected.

Although Trudeau has shown no symptom of the disease and is still considered healthy according to his communications director, he will have to work from home until every possibility of being infected with the virus has been ruled out.

“The Prime Minister will spend the day in briefings, phone calls, and virtual meetings from home, including speaking with other world leaders and joining the special COVID-19 cabinet committee discussion,” Trudeau’s office said on Thursday.

The president of the European Parliament, David Sassoli is also in self isolation for two weeks. He had visited Italy over the last weekend.

Italy already has a very high case of Coronavirus and he is in self isolation till it is confirmed that he is not infected by the disease.

This Tuesday, the European Union meeting which he chaired was held via a video Conference.
