Health officials say a WestJet flight that landed last Friday in Victoria had an identified case of COVID-19 onboard.
BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) is warning passengers about potential exposure to COVID-19 onboard WestJet flight 227 that arrived at Victoria International Airport from Calgary on Oct. 30.
The affected rows are four-through-10.
The flight has been added to the BCCDC’s exposure list.
Passengers who were on board a domestic flight that has been added to the province’s COVID-19 exposure list should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, according to the BCCDC.
Those who were sitting in rows identified are considered to be at a higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case.
COVID-19 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.
