‘I Tested Positive for Covid-19,’ Trudeau Says

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada announced he had tested positive after being exposed to the coronavirus a week earlier. Mr. Trudeau also criticized the behavior of protesters who rallied in Ottawa to oppose vaccine mandates.

The battle against Covid-19 is still dominating so many parts of our lives. This virus affects us all. Two of my own children have now contracted it, and this morning I learned I tested positive for Covid-19 as well. I feel well and have no symptoms. Of course, I’ll be working remotely this week and will keep following public health guidelines. I want to take this opportunity to remind Canadians to please get vaccinated. Over the past few days, Canadians were shocked and frankly disgusted by the behavior displayed by some people protesting in our nation’s capital. To the politicians exploiting people’s fears, I ask you to think long and hard about the consequences of your actions. To the nearly 90 percent of truckers across the country who’ve gotten vaccinated, who continue working hard to keep us fed and keep our economy moving, thank you.
