However, Trudeau himself is in “good health with no symptoms,” according to a statement posted on Twitter by his communications director.

He will spend the next two weeks in self-isolation, while Sophie is also in quarantine.

Sophie was tested for the coronavirus after experiencing flu-like symptoms following a recent trip to London.
