Passengers who were on two recent Vancouver Island flights are being warned about possible exposure to COVID-19.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) added WestJet flight 3171 from Calgary to Comox on May 4 and Harbour Air flight 611 from Vancouver to Nanaimo on May 3 to its COVID-19 exposure list.
The affected rows on WS flight 3171 were 1 to 6 while the affected rows on Harbour Air flight 611 were not disclosed.
A total of four Vancouver Island flights in May have been added to BCCDC’s list and three of those flights have departed from Calgary.
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.
