The BC Centre for Disease Control says at least one case of COVID-19 was detected on a flight from Vancouver to Victoria on April 1.
The potential exposure occurred on Air Canada Flight 8079, with passengers in rows 13 to 19 affected.
While passengers are no longer notified of potential exposures on flights, the BCCDC says “passengers seated in these rows should be considered to be at higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case.”
Anyone on the affected flight should self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days, according to the BCCDC.
Close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases will be contacted directly.
