Two flights to Victoria have been added to a list of domestic flights in which passengers may have been exposed to COVID-19.

Passengers travelling on two WestJet flights, both on carrier 195 travelling on October 10 and 11 from Calgary to Victoria are advised to be aware that they may have been exposed to the virus.

On the first flight, on October 10, passengers seated in rows 5 to 11 are at risk of contracting the illness.

On the second flight that landed in Victoria the next day, passengers in rows 1 to 7 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 late September, an Air Canada flight departed from Toronto and landed in Victoria with a similar exposure advisory in place.
