BCCDC announces two more COVID-19 flights in Vancouver

More COVID-19 flights

Two more flights have been added to the list of potential COVID-19 exposures.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control tweeted out a notification that has added two more domestic flights involving Vancouver International Airport.

One flight is an Air Canada flight 204 from Vancouver to Calgary on July 27 and an Air Canada flight, 343 from Ottawa to Vancouver. It has now been confirmed that both flights had at least one confirmed case of COVID-19 onboard.

The BCCDC indicates anyone who was on those flights should self-monitor for the next 14 days as a precaution.

Specifically, passengers in rows 18 to 24 on the Vancouver to Calgary flight and passengers who were in row 4 or rows 12 to 17 on the Ottawa to Vancouver flight are asked to take particular care because of their proximity to one of the confirmed cases.

These two new additions bring the total number of domestic flights with identified cases of COVID-19 in B.C. in the month of July to 15.

The BCCDC is not directly contacting all passengers instead, the centre posts a list of flights with exposures to the virus on its website.
