Passengers recently onboard a WestJet flight that arrived at Victoria International Airport are being warned of possible exposure to COVID-19.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added WestJet flight 3115 from Calgary to Victoria on April 22 to its exposure list.
The affected rows on the flight span from rows 9 to 15.
Over the weekend a couple of other Vancouver Island flights were added to BC CDC’s exposure list as well.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) added Air Canada/Jazz flight 8261 from Vancouver to Nanaimo on April 20, WestJet flight 3109 from Calgary to Nanaimo on April 14 and WestJet flight 3171 from Calgary to Comox also on April 14 and to the list as well.
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.
