BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) is warning passengers about potential exposure to COVID-19 onboard WestJet flight 3355 that arrived at Comox Valley Airport from Calgary on Oct. 22. The affected rows are 1-6 and the aircraft involved was a De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 turboprop.
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.
