Trudeau spent about 12 hours at the Ottawa hotel after arriving back in the country Tuesday night.

His office says Trudeau will follow public health rules and advice for Canadians returning from abroad during the pandemic, which include quarantining for 14 days and taking another COVID-19 test about seven days after arrival.

Trudeau was overseas from last Thursday until Tuesday for summits with other G7, NATO and European leaders.

Trudeau’s overnight stay in a hotel came after his Liberal government had spent months defending the policy of forcing most Canadians returning from international travel to quarantine in a hotel room for up to three days at their own expense.

Ottawa has said the policy, along with its slate of other border measures, has been effective at limiting COVID-19 from entering the country.

An expert review panel recently said the hotel-quarantine policy had no scientific basis and recommended the government scrap it. The panel noted travellers who fly to the United States and return across a land border face no such rule.
