Nanaimo flight added COVID-19 exposure list

Passengers who were on a recent flight that landed in Nanaimo are being warned about possible exposure to COVID-19.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added Air Canada/Jazz flight 8261 from Vancouver to Nanaimo on April 27 to its COVID-19 exposure list.

The affected rows on the flight were 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.
