Passengers who were on a couple of recent Island flights are being warned about possible exposure to COVID-19.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added Harbour Air flight 610 from Nanaimo to Vancouver on Oct. 19 and Pacific Coastal Airlines flight 744 from Comox to Vancouver on Oct. 18 to its coronavirus exposure list.

Affected rows on either flight were not reported.

The BCCDC says passengers who were on a flight that has been added to the province’s COVID-19 exposure list should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and those who were sitting in rows identified are considered to be at a higher risk of exposure due to their proximity.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, chills, cough or worsening of chronic cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of sense of smell or taste, runny nose, headache and fatigue.

The addition of the two flights to the province’s COVID exposure list brings the total number of Island flights with reported exposures this year to 178.
