The BC Centre for Disease Control has identified a flight carrying one or more COVID-19 patients that departed from Toronto and landed in Victoria late September.

Passengers travelling on Air Canada flight 195 travelling on September 23 from Toronto to Victoria are advised to be aware that they may have been exposed to the virus.

According to the BCCDC, passengers seated in rows 29 to 32 are in particular danger of having been exposed to COVID-19.

Affected travellers are asked to monitor their symptoms for 14 days and call 8-1-1 to get tested if they do develop symptoms of the virus.

Since late March, the BCCDC has not been contacting passengers who sat near a confirmed patient during their flight.

Instead all travellers must check their website to find out whether they have been exposed to the virus.

Since the beginning of June, multiple international and domestic flights have landed in or departed from Vancouver and Victoria with confirmed COVID-19 cases.

In early September, an Air Canada flight departed from Toronto and landed in Victoria with a similar exposure advisory in place.
