Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is isolating at home after one of his cabinet ministers tested positive for COVID-19.
A spokesman for Kenney says the premier went into self-isolation after learning that Municipal Affairs Minister Tracy Allard was infected.
Deputy press secretary Harrison Fleming says Allard had been isolating since the weekend because a close contact tested positive.
He says Allard received her positive test result this afternoon and Kenney immediately went into isolation as a precaution.
Shortly before that, Kenney was speaking in the legislature during question period.
Alberta is reporting 406 new cases of COVID-19 and three new deaths.
