Why wasn't Justin Trudeau tested, when his wife tested positive in Mar 2020? I'm not referring to his negative test in Oct 2020.
On Mar 28 2020, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau says she has recovered from COVID-19
Since testing positive more than two weeks ago, Grégoire Trudeau had some of the flu-like symptoms that come with the virus, but also a persistent headache.
Trudeau has been in self-isolation since his wife's positive test in an effort to stop the spread of the virus to other cabinet ministers and high-ranking government officials. Trudeau has never personally experienced any of the symptoms, and he has not been tested for the virus.
On Oct 5 2020, "In September, I had a bit of a throat tickle is probably the best way I could say it, a bit of a raspy throat. So I checked with my doctor and he recommended I get tested. I got tested. It was negative. And I went back to work a few days later when that when the doctor told me I was clear to do it," Trudeau told reporters on Monday.
This was the first time Trudeau spoke publicly about being tested for the virus. It remains unclear where, and exactly when the prime minister got tested.
