In an emailed media release on November 23rd, Turtle Mountain Progressive Conservative MLA Doyle Piwniuk announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

“I was informed by a friend that he had contracted COVID-19. I had myself tested and it came back positive. I immediately went into isolation and informed people I had come into contact with of my status. My family has tested negative and they are feeling fine. I am double vaccinated and not feeling any symptoms of the virus. I will continue to follow all advice and direction from public health orders and hope to return to my duties as soon as it is clear it and safe to do so."

Earlier this week, NDP leader Wab Kinew also announced he had tested positive for COVID.
