UK chief Brexit negotiator self-isolates after showing COVID-19 symptoms

LONDON — The U.K.s chief Brexit negotiator David Frost is self-isolating after showing “mild symptoms” of COVID-19, government officials confirmed.

Frost, who leads the U.K. team in post-Brexit trade talks with the EU, has not had contact with the EUs chief negotiator Michel Barnier — who said he had “tested postive for COVID-19” on Thursday — since the first round of trade talks in Brussels two weeks ago.

Bloomberg reported late on Thursday that Frost is self-isolating. On Friday morning a U.K. official confirmed to POLITICO that this was the case. “He is self-isolating as he has some mild symptoms,” the official said.
