Two domestic flights that arrived at Victoria International Airport (YYJ) 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 two flights in the past week – one arriving at YYJ from Calgary and one from Toronto.
Passengers who were on board Air Canada flight 195, which arrived in Victoria from Toronto on Jan. 10, are being warned of a possible COVID-19 exposure. The affected rows range from 1-4.
WestJet flight 227, arriving in Victoria from Calgary on Jan. 11, was also added to the list, with the affected rows being 11-17.
The warnings come a week after the BCCDC added a flight that arrived in Nanaimo from Calgary to the exposure list as well.
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.
