It turns out Premier Scott Moe does not have COVID-19.

The Premier's office said Friday that he tested negative for the virus.

Having coronavirus was a possibility after a potential exposure on Nov. 15 at a restaurant in Prince Albert. Moe had lunch at the restaurant with family following a death in the family.

Moe has been in self-isolation in Shellbrook, Sask., since he received an alert about the potential exposure on Monday.

The government said he'll remain inside until Sunday.

The all-clear result means he can be in Regina on Monday for the delivery of the throne speech.
