Update (1216ET): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife are planning to self-quarantine after the PM’s wife, Sophie Gregoire, recently returned from London, where she visited for a speaking engagement, developed a low fever and other symptoms of the virus last night.

She immediately sought medical advice, and is being tested for the virus.

Though doctors recommended that the prime minister could continue his daily activities while monitoring himself for symptoms, “out of an abundance of caution” (a phrase we’re hearing more and more lately) he has decided to self-quarantine as well.

The PM will spend Friday and the rest of Thursday doing virtual meetings and briefings at home.

Dr. Anthony Fauci described the response as “a failing” because of the tests.

The hearing was abruptly called to recess, but readers can watch it live here when it returns:
