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.
The addition of WS 3109 comes less than a week after the WestJet flight 3315 from Calgary to Comox on Jan. 24 was placed on the list.
A total of 32 WestJet flights that either departed or landed on Vancouver Island have been added to the province’s COVID-19 exposure list since the pandemic began.
