Two flights with destinations on Vancouver Island have been added to the list of public COVID-19 exposures.
The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) reported public exposures in the past four days on a flight to Victoria, and another to Comox.
The BCCDC lists passenger rows where applicable as an indicator of a higher risk due to proximity to the case.
In this case, the affected flights and rows are:
- Westjet flight 3335 from Calgary to Comox, affected rows 13 to 19
- Westjet flight 335 from Edmonton to Victoria, affected rows 25 to 30
Anyone on a domestic flight with COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
Those arriving in Canada on international flights are required to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon their arrival.
Effective March 27, the BCCDC is no longer notifying passengers on affected flights about potential exposures. The information on affected flights is posted publicly on the BCCDC website.
