Liberal MP Anthony Housefather is isolating himself at his home in Montreal as a precaution after attending a conference in Washington D.C. last week with people who later tested positive for the novel coronavirus, CBC News has learned.

Organizers of two major political events — the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (or AIPAC) and the Conservative Political Action Conference (or CPAC) — have confirmed that several participants have tested positive for the virus.

Housefather told CBC News in an email that he attended AIPAC and is now self-isolating at home "out of an abundance of caution," at least until he hears back from public health officials in Toronto who are working to trace someone who attended the conference and tested positive for the virus.
