Passengers who were seated in the rows specified are considered at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their proximity to a confirmed case.
Travellers arriving on international flights are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon landing in B.C. Domestic travellers are not required to self-isolate, but the BCCDC asks anyone who was on any of the affected flights should self-monitor for symptoms of the coronavirus, seeking testing and self-isolating if any develop.
B.C. health officials do not directly contact people who were on flights with COVID-19 cases on board. Instead, notifications are posted regularly on the BCCDC website.
