The BCCDC has issued a new COVID-19 exposure alert for a Westjet flight that landed in Comox earlier this month.
Passengers travelling on Westjet flight 3315 on October 22 from Calgary to Comox are advised to be aware that they may have been exposed to the virus.
In particular, those seated in rows 6 – 12 are at risk of contracting the illness.
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.
This advisory comes one week after another possible exposure on a flight that landed in Victoria with COVID-19 exposure alerts in place.
