Métis Nation-Saskatchewan (MN-S) President Glen McCallum has tested positive for COVID-19. A press statement says he is asymptomatic. He was tested as a preventative measure given his role in the community.
McCallum is self-isolating and following public health protocols. McCallum and the MN-S are fully engaged with the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) efforts to support appropriate contact tracing.
“I want to thank everyone who has called and sent messages of concern,” said McCallumn. “I’ve been touched by the kindness the community has shown since my diagnosis became public. I’m fortunate to be healthy and not have any symptoms but this demonstrates how easily, and unknowingly, this virus is spread.”
He said his family is safe and healthy.
