Ottawa/IBNS: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly said that he has been exposed to COVID-19 and will be self-isolating for five days, following Ottawa Public Health guidance.

Trudeau said in a tweet this morning that after he learned about the exposure Wednesday night.

"I feel fine and will be working from home," he tweeted. "Stay safe, everyone — and please get vaccinated."

After reportedly taking a rapid test, he was negative and said he is feeling fine and will be working from home.

This happened immediately after the prime minister wrapped up his virtual retreat with his cabinet where some ministers were standing alongside Trudeau during an in-person press conference on Parliament Hill on Wednesday night.

The ministers who were present with the Prime Minister for the event were Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly, and Defence Minister Anita Anand.

So far it has not been indicated if any of these ministers are also in isolation.

According to the timing of his exposure, he will remain in self-isolation over the weekend when the convoy of truckers is set to arrive in Ottawa.
