Passengers who were recently onboard an Air Canada flight that departed Victoria are being warned of possible exposure to COVID-19.
The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) added Air Canada/Jazz 8050 from Victoria to Vancouver on Jan. 28 to its exposure list on Wednesday.
The affected rows on AC 8050 are rows 4 to 10.
It’s the first time an Air Canada flight that departed Victoria and landed in Vancouver has been added to the exposure list.
Over 35 flights that have either departed or landed in Victoria have been added to the list since the pandemic began.
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.
