The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) added WestJet flight 3109 from Calgary to Nanaimo on Jan. 26 to its COVID-19 exposure list Sunday.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) added WestJet flight 3109 from Calgary to Nanaimo on Jan. 26 to its COVID-19 exposure list Sunday.

The affected rows on WS 3109 are rows 1 to 7.

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.
