EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has entered self-quarantine after recently coming into contact with a person with Covid-19, she wrote on Twitter on Monday.
I’ve been informed that I participated in a meeting last Tuesday attended by a person who yesterday tested positive for COVID-19. In accordance with regulations in force, I’m therefore self-isolating until tomorrow morning. I’ve tested negative on Thursday & am tested again today— Ursula von der Leyen (@vonderleyen) October 5, 2020
