Bloc Quebecois leader Yves-Francois Blanchet has tested positive for COVID-19, but he says he feels fine.

He will stay in isolation at his Shawinigan, Quebec home until September 26th.

Blanchet's wife, Nancy, tested positive for the illness earlier this week.

Quebec's public health rules say a person who tests positive but doesn't have serious symptoms must stay isolated for 10 days.

The Bloc leader was already in self-isolation, along with much of his caucus and other aides, after a staff member contracted COVID-19.
