Two recent Vancouver Island flights have been added to the province’s COVID-19 exposure list.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) is warning passengers about possible exposure to the coronavirus onboard two recent Air Canada flights that departed or arrived at Victoria International Airport.
The two flights are Air Canada 192 from Victoria to Toronto on Oct. 24 and Air Canada/Jazz 8069 from Vancouver to Victoria on Nov. 2.
The affected rows on Air Canada 192 were 1-4 while the affected rows on Air Canada/Jazz flight 8069 were 7-13, according to the BCCDC.
Those who were sitting in rows identified are considered to be at a higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case.
Passengers who were on board a domestic flight that has been added to the province’s COVID-19 exposure list should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, says BCCDC.
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.
