ERIN O’TOOLE GETTING TESTED FOR COVID-19

Just weeks into his new role as leader of the Federal Conservatives, Erin O’Toole, his family and some other staffers are in self-isolation after an aid tested positive for COVID-19.

O’Toole and his family are not showing any symptoms, but they are getting tested. The Conservative leader was set to appear at an event in Alberta Wednesday evening, which was part of a tour of the Conservative heartland in the West.

Meantime, another political leader is self-isolating. Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet is awaiting the results of his own COVID-19 test after both his spouse and an aide tested positive for the illness.
