Travellers arriving in B.C. on international flights are required to self-isolate for 14 days after landing. Domestic travellers are not required to self-isolate, but public health officials across Canada have been recommending against non-essential travel during the pandemic’s ongoing second wave.
Anyone who was on any of the flights listed should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, seeking testing and self-isolating if any develop.
Passengers who were seated in the rows listed are considered to be at greater risk of contracting the coronavirus because of their proximity to a confirmed case.
Health officials in B.C. do not directly contact people who were on flights with COVID-19 cases on board. Instead, flights with confirmed cases are listed on the BCCDC website.
