Mayor Jeff Lehman announces he is self-isolating after travelling to the US

Barrie mayor not showing any symptoms

Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman took to twitter Monday afternoon to announce that he is self-isolating, after returning from a brief trip to the United States last week.

Lehman did emphasize that he has experienced no symptoms and the move is cautionary.

Lehman’s announcement comes on the heels of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau closing Canada’s borders to all but citizens and permanent residents. The closure does not apply to family members of citizens, aircrew, diplomats, and U.S. citizens.

On Monday morning Premier Doug Ford announced new job-protection measures for employees in isolation or quarantine due to COVID-19 concerns.
