The House of Commons is shutting down in a bid to tackle the growing spread of the new coronavirus disease known as COVID-19.

Officials from the political parties have been in discussions over recent days about whether the House of Commons should return from its scheduled break week next week and on Friday, the Conservative House Leader Mark Strahl and Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet said all parties had reached an agreement to suspend.

Government House Leader Pablo Rodriguez spoke after all of the opposition parties had voiced their agreement for the motion to adjourn.
