Vestager To Self-Isolate After COVID-19 Contact

The European Commission’s Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said on Sunday, November 15, she would self-isolate next week and work from home after one of her co-workers tested positive for COVID-19.

“I have been informed that a working relation is tested coronavirus positive.” Vestager wrote on Twitter. “Luckily, he has no symptoms and I wish him all the best. I have been tested, am now in quarantine and will work from home the coming week.”

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a number of European commissioners have had to go into quarantine, including President Ursula von der Leyen, Frans Timmermans, Valdis Dombrovskis, and Stella Kyriakides.
