The First Lady has been in contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19. So far, she shows no coronavirus symptoms, but has to get into self-isolation in the next couple of hours, as recommended by the health protocol.
In a press release published in the late afternoon, Brigitte Macron’s entourage says she has been “in contact on Thursday October 15 with someone tested positive for Covid-19 this Monday October 19, and showing symptoms of the disease”. Then, the declaration says that “in compliance with the recommendations from the health authorities, she will observe a seven-day self-isolation period”, before concluding that Brigitte Macron “shows so far no symptoms of the disease”.
