Victoria flight added to province's COVID-19 exposure list

Passengers who were on a recent flight that that departed Victoria are being warned of possible exposure to COVID-19.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added WestJet flight 3116 from Victoria to Calgary on April 5 to its COVID-19 exposure list.

The affected rows on the flight were not reported.

It’s the first time a Vancouver Island flight has been added to the list in three days, when they identified WestJet flight 3109 from Calgary to Nanaimo on May 5 as having had an exposure.

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.
