A U.S. billionaire who was granted a special exemption from Canada's 14-day pandemic quarantine, despite her public criticism of COVID-19 restrictions, has now contracted the disease.

Liz Uihlein, the 75-year-old president and CEO of Wisconsin-based shipping supply firm Uline Inc., sent a memo to employees on Nov. 11 informing them that she and her husband, Dick Uihlein, had tested positive and were isolating at home.

"After all these long months, I thought we'd never get it. Well, Trump got it..." reads the company-wide email, a copy of which was obtained by CBC News. "If we had not been around people with COVID-19, we would not have been tested. We would have been at Uline."
