French Prime Minister Jean Castex is reportedly self-isolating after his wife tested positive for COVID-19. 

The prime minister is isolating for seven days, his office said, according to Reuters.

Castex had received his first shot of the AstraZeneca vaccine on 19 March and he tested negative to COVID-19 on Wednesday. 

However, given that he has had contact with someone who has tested positive, he will undergo a period of isolation in accordance with coronavirus guidelines. 

It is unclear whether his wife is receiving any treatment for her COVID-19 symptoms. 

In September, Castex had tested negative after being in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case.
