Portuguese Prime Minister, Antonio Costa is reported to have will self-isolate for 14 days, after the news broke that President Emmanuel Macron has tested positive to coronavirus. This comes after meeting Macron over lunch.

Portuguese Prime Minister, as reported by Reuters, and in a statement released by Lisbon’s regional health authority ARSLVT which was cited by Lusa news agency, stated that a working lunch between the two leaders on Wednesday was considered a “high-risk exposure” to the coronavirus.

The Portuguese Prime Minister, Costa tested negative on Thursday, but ARSLVT said he would have to stay in isolation until Dec. 29, which will be 14 days after he met with Macron in Paris to discuss Portugal’s upcoming European Council presidency.

Macron tested positive on Thursday, after meetings with EU heads of government in recent days. Those included a meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, who has tested negative.

News photos showed Macron warmly welcoming Costa to the palace, with both wearing face masks as they stood shoulder to shoulder outside the entrance to the Elysee Palace.

Costa’s office said on Thursday he cancelled all in-person public activities, including an official trip to Sao Tome and Principe and Guinea Bissau this weekend, but would work remotely.

Macron said in a video posted on Twitter on Friday he was doing fine but was working at a slower pace.
