The leader of the Bloc Québécois and the party’s entire caucus are in self-isolation after a staff member tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The preventive measure was announced Monday afternoon by the party’s spokesperson in a statement, who said members are taking the proper precautions.
“We will all be screened to ensure the health of our team and strictly adhere to public health guidelines,” said Carolane Landry in a statement. “There is no risk involved. Rest assured that we take this situation very seriously.”
Landry said the staff member works in leader Yves-François Blanchet’s office.
Bloc MPs will be working virtually while they await their test results.
