Three domestic flights that arrived on Vancouver Island have been added to the BC Centre for Disease Control’s COVID-19 exposure list.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) is warning passengers who were on three flights, which arrived at three Vancouver Island airports in the past week.
Passengers who were on board Air Canada/Jazz flight 8081, which arrived in Victoria from Vancouver on Jan. 22, are being warned of a possible COVID-19 exposure. The affected rows range from 10-16.
WestJet flight 3315, arriving in Comox from Calgary on Jan. 24, was added to the list, with the affected rows being 3-9.
Lastly, WestJet flight 3109 that arrived in Nanaimo from Calgary on Jan. 26 has been added to the exposure list. The affected rows are 1-7.
Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and those seated identified are considered to be at a higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case, according to the BCCDC.
Coronavirus symptoms 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.
