Update (2230ET): A few hours ago, we reported that PM Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Gregoire, had gone into self-quarantine after his wife had exhibited symptoms of the virus after visiting London recently.

Well, the test results are in. And Gregoire, the first lady of Canada, is positive for Covid-19.

She and the Prime Minister will be self-isolating for 14 days.

As we wait for the Premier League’s emergency tomorrow, news has broke that Chelsea Football Club player Callum Hudson-Odoi has tested positive for the virus and will remain in self-isolation. Callum displayed symptoms on Monday morning, and hasn’t been to the team’s training ground since. The rest of the team and its coaching staff will now self-isolate.

Update (2020ET): The Trump Campaign has asked workers to work from home through Monday.

In other news, Charles Barkley said he plans to self-quarantine after falling ill. He has been tested for the coronavirus, but is awaiting the results.

Update (2000ET): Like we mentioned earlier, Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive, and as sports leagues around the world suspend play, the Premier League is reportedly holding emergency crisis talks on Friday, according to the Independent.

Many of the clubs owners want play to be shut down and disagree with the decision to continue so far. Some are even pushing for the entire season to be voided.

Also: In further bad news for the airline industry, American Air has confirmed that one of its pilots tested positive for the virus. And Disney has just announced a decision to close theme parks in Florida and Paris – rounding out most of its biggest parks around the world. They closed Disney Land in California earlier today.
