Triple Vaccinated Justin Trudeau Tests Positive for Covid 4 Days After Meeting Biden

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday announced he tested positive for covid, just four days after he met with President Joe Biden at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.

Trudeau, who attended the summit with his wife Sophie, said he is vaccinated and boosted. He will be isolating and feels ‘okay.’

‘I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating. I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots. So, if you haven’t, get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves,’ he wrote on Twitter.

Trudeau, 50, and Biden held a bilateral meeting on Thursday in Los Angeles. Trudeau and Sophie attended a dinner Thursday night hosted by Joe and Jill Biden. And the Canadian prime minister took part in the ‘family photo’ of American leaders on Friday.

Biden ‘is not a close contact as defined by the CDC,’ the White House said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a close contact is someone who has spent more than 15 minutes within six feet of a person who is positive.

Biden, 79, is vaccinated and double boosted.

It is the second time Trudeau has tested positive for covid. He also tested positive in January.

Canada has one of the world´s highest rates of vaccination against the coronavirus.
