Every member of the Bloc Quebecois caucus, including leader Yves-Francois Blanchet, are in a COVID-19 lockdown.

A statement from the party says an employee got a positive test today, days after the Bloc held a full caucus meeting.

Bloc spokeswoman Carolane Landry says everyone potentially affected will be screened to ensure they're healthy and will follow public health guidelines.

The news comes as the parties in the House of Commons continue debating how the chamber will work once business resumes next week.
