CONSERVATIVE Party Leader Erin O’Toole and his family will be tested for COVID-19 on Wednesday after a member of his staff, with with whom he was travelling, tested positive for COVID-19.
The Conservative Party said in a statement that while the staff member hasn’t shown symptoms, O’Toole and his family are being tested out of an abundance of caution. Other staff who were travelling with O’Toole are also being tested and will be self-isolating.
O’Toole’s office is contacting everyone with whom he has recently met.
O’Toole said: “My family and I are feeling well, but we take COVID-19 very seriously. Today was going to be Jack’s first day back at school, but instead we will be getting tested and self-isolating per public health guidelines. The health and safety of my family and all Canadians is my top priority.”
