This week’s summit of EU leaders has been postponed as European Council President Charles Michel has gone into quarantine after being in contact with a security officer who tested positive for COVID, a spokesman said.
“The @eucopresident today learned that a security officer, with whom he was in close contact early last week, tested positive for COVID. The President is tested regularly and tested negative yesterday. Respecting Belgian rules, he has gone into quarantine as of today,” Michel’s spokesman Barend Leyts tweeted on Tuesday.
“The @eucopresident has decided to postpone the special European Council meeting that was planned for 24 and 25 September to 1 and 2 October.”
