J’ai un résultat positif à la COVID-19. Je vais suivre les consignes de santé publique et m’isoler. Je vais bien, et c’est grâce à mes vaccins. Si ce n’est déjà fait, obtenez vos vaccins ou doses de rappel. Protégeons notre système de santé et protégeons-nous les uns les autres.

A wave of cases among the MPs of the Bloc-Quebecois
Several Bloc Québécois MPs have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past two weeks.
In the week of June 1, Denis Trudel, MNA for Longueuil–Saint-Hubert, Stéphane Bergeron, MNA for Montarville, René Villemure, MNA for Trois-Rivières, and Julie Vignola, MNA for Beauport–Limoilou had to go into isolation.
The following week, the MPs for Drummond and Manicouagan, Martin Champoux and Marilène Gill, also obtained a positive result. It was then the turn of the member for Mirabel, Jean-Denis Garon.
The party even canceled its press briefing scheduled for last Thursday, June 9, without mentioning a reason. Many suspect that it’s because of the meteoric wave of COVID-19 affecting its deputies.
