European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides said today that she will self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
“I was informed that a close contact has tested positive for COVID 19,” the commissioner tweeted. “I have no symptoms and feel well.”
On Wednesday, Valdis Dombrovskis, the European Commissions executive vice president and acting trade commissioner, went into self-quarantine after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus. That was a day after European Council President Charles Michel postponed a meeting of EU leaders so that he could go into self-quarantine after a security officer who had been in close contact with him tested positive for the virus.
