Coronavirus: Here are the prominent Canadians in self isolation over COVID-19

As the number of cases of a novel coronavirus continues to rise in this country, some notable Canadians and people with ties to Canada are self-isolating. They include:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and their family

The Trudeaus have gone into 14 days of self-isolation after Gregoire Trudeau tested positive for COVID-19 following a trip to the U.K. The prime minister says he doesn’t have any symptoms and has not been tested — based on his doctors’ advice — but he will work from home because he was in close contact with his wife.

Toronto Mayor John Tory

Tory recently returned from a trade mission to London. He announced Friday that he has no symptoms but said he would go into self-isolation for the following 12 days.

P.E.I. Premier Dennis King

King released a statement Friday saying both he and his family were self-isolating after a trip to Boston earlier in the week.
