The prime minister remains “in good health with no symptoms” a statement from his office said.

Though self-quarantining himself, the prime minister is spending the day in briefings, phone calls and virtual meetings from home, including speaking with other world leaders and joining a special cabinet committee discussion on the coronavirus.

Trudeau’s decision to self-isolate follows two members of his cabinet – trade minister Mary Ng and natural resources minister Seamus O’Regan – also choosing to self isolate in recent days.

Both O’Regan and Trudeau recently attended a conference in Toronto where one person was later diagnosed with coronavirus.

Health officials have asked all 25,000 people who attended to monitor for any symptoms of the coronavirus.

To date, Canada has 140 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and one death.
