Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole has tested positive for COVID-19 but is "feeling well," according to the party.
"This evening, Erin O'Toole received a positive test result for COVID-19," the party said in a statement Friday.
"He is very relieved that his wife and children have tested negative. O'Toole remains in self-isolation and is feeling well."
The test result comes as multiple regions in Canada contend with a steady rise in new cases amid the coronavirus pandemic that has already claimed more than 9,000 Canadian lives and infected 141,000 people across the country.
