Deziel says she and those close to her will be in isolation until next Tuesday.

She's continuing to work remotely as a scientist and city councillor in Shawinigan, Que.

Blanchet himself, along with the Bloc Quebecois caucus, was already in isolation as a precaution, after a member of his staff tested positive Monday.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau tested positive for COVID-19 early in the pandemic but has recovered.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 15, 2020.
