BRUSSELS, Sep 22, 2020, SPA -- European Council President Charles Michel postponed a summit of European Union leaders on Thursday and Friday until the start of October after going into coronavirus quarantine due to contact with an infected security guard, his spokesman said, according to Reuters.
Michel, who chairs EU summits, tested negative for COVID-19 on Monday, his spokesman said via Twitter, but was following the rules in Belgium, the seat of EU institutions where the summits of EU leaders take place, by going into isolation.
