OTTAWA -- Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau will stay in a quarantine hotel for three days starting Wednesday after returning from the United Kingdom where he's attending the first in-person meeting of G7 foreign and development ministers in over two years.
Garneau's spokeswoman Syrine Khoury said he will abide by the same rules that every Canadian has to follow after travelling outside the country, including doing PCR COVID-19 tests before and after boarding his flight to Canada and staying in a government-approved hotel for three days.
"There's no special treatment for Minister Garneau. He will pass through the same process as every Canadian," she said.
