Stefanson was at a few public events recently, including the unveiling of a mural at the legislature Monday which had dozens of people in attendance.

Manitoba's other main party leaders have also tested positive for COVID-19 at different times during the pandemic.

Opposition Leader Wab Kinew, who tested positive last November, wished Stefanson a speedy recovery on Twitter.
