Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says while he and his children are remaining in self-isolation after his wife tested positive for the novel coronavirus, health professionals have told him he does not need to be tested unless he develops symptoms.

Sophie Gregoire Trudeau is now in quarantine following her diagnosis, and Health Minister Patty Hajdu says public health officials will be reaching out to everyone who had contact with her.

Trudeau says he will be working from home for the next couple of weeks, and he is keeping in close touch with his counterparts in the provinces and abroad.
