Conservative leader Erin O’Toole and his family are getting tested for coronavirus Wednesday after a staffer he was travelling with was diagnosed with the virus.
The politician hasn’t shown any symptoms so far, but he and his family have been isolating since they got word of the staff member’s positive test result.
“My family and I are feeling well, but we take COVID-19 very seriously,” O’Toole said in a statement. “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.”

Several other staff members who were also in contact with the coronavirus-positive individual are also self-isolating and getting tested, according to a statement from the party.
O’Toole’s office is also reaching out directly to everyone the leader met with in recent days to advise them of the situation.
