“This morning I was made aware that I have tested positive for COVID-19. I have been self isolating and will continue to do so over the next 14 days as I work from home to participate virtually in city business and committee meetings, and to continue serving the residents of Etobicoke North,” Ford said in a statement released through his office Tuesday evening.
Ford said he is “feeling well” and is in constant contact with Toronto Public Health.
Premier Ford’s office told CP24 that Doug Ford has not interacted with his nephew over the past two weeks and that there are no concerns around his personal health.
“We wish Councillor Ford a speedy recovery,” the premier’s office said.
Ford has been on Toronto City Council since winning a 2016 byelection to fill the seat of his late uncle, Rob Ford, who passed away that year. He was reelected in 2018 and currently serves on a number of committees, including the Toronto Police Services Board.
