Victoria flights added to province’s COVID-19 exposure list

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

Passengers who were onboard two recent Victoria flights are being warned of potential exposure to the novel coronavirus.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added Pacific Coastal Airlines flight 8P1543 from Victoria to Kelowna on Feb. 22 to its COVID-19 exposure list.

It has also added Pacific Coastal Airlines flight 8P1538 from Kelowna to Victoria on Feb. 24 to the list.

The affected rows were not disclosed by the BCCDC.

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.
