You can read her full statement below.
"Like so many others over the last couple years, I tested positive for COVID-19 this morning. We’ve been doing our best to keep everyone safe, and I’ll keep doing that by staying in isolation.
Over the next few days, we were scheduled to go to Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay, Kenora, Sandy Lake First Nation and North Bay — and I was really looking forward to it. We’ll have to make some adjustments, but I’ll continue to connect with people however I can.
Stay safe, and take care of each other, and I’ll see you all on Zoom.”
Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner is also self-isolating at home after he tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday evening. He broke the news on social media last night.

I'm fully vaccinated and am feeling fine. As public health advises, I will self-isolate for a few days and will continue campaigning remotely from home.
