Secretary of State Melanie Joly has tested positive for COVID-19 after a rapid test, she announced on Twitter on Monday.
In a series of tweets, Joly said she is currently in quarantine and will continue to work virtual until she receives her PCR test results.
“I am grateful for the protection that vaccines give us and encourage people to get vaccinated and stay healthy. It’s the best thing we can do to keep our families safe this holiday season and all year long,” she said.
“While it is important to get tested for COVID, remember that testing alone does not protect you from getting and spreading the virus. Please continue to exercise caution, limit exposure and respect public health guidelines. We will get through this together. ”
