A domestic flight carrying a COVID-19 patient landed in Victoria last week.
According to the BCCDC, a passenger tested positive for the virus on an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Victoria on Monday July 13.
The AC flight 8073 has been added to a list of international and domestic flights that were carrying confirmed cases of COVID-19 and landed in Canadian cities.
Since late March, the BCCDC has not been contacting passengers who sat near a confirmed patient during their flight.
Instead all travellers must check on their website to find out whether they have been exposed to the virus. However the seats in which affected passengers may have sat are no longer being disclosed.
“For flights with ‘affected seats’ not specified, we recommend that flight passengers self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days following the flight,” reads the BCCDC website.
Since the beginning of June, multiple international and domestic flights have landed in Vancouver with confirmed COVID-19 cases.
This is the first flight in the past month to land in Victoria with a similar exposure advisory in place.
