The mayor of London, Ont. will self-isolate for two weeks starting Monday, after returning from a trip to the U.S.

Mayor Ed Holder is cutting a family reunion short and has "secured the first available flight to London," says a news release that Holder tweeted Saturday afternoon.

He is not showing any COVID-19 symptoms and is "feeling healthy," the statement said.

Holder left for the U.S. on Wednesday before Canadian authorities issued any travel advisories, the statement said. He was originally scheduled to come home on March 22.

"During his time in the United States, Mayor Holder was in daily contact with health care professionals in London and City staff helping to coordinate and lead London's response to the COVID-19 pandemic," the statement said.

"He will continue to be an active participant in London's planning and response while in self-isolation."

Toronto Mayor John Tory is also in self isolation, after returning from a trip to the United Kingdom.
