A few Vancouver Island tours have been added to the county’s COVID-19 exposure list.
The British Columbia Center for Disease Control (BCCDC) is warning passengers who were on Air Canada Flight 8253 from Vancouver to Nanaimo on December 12 and Air Canada Flight 8075 from Victoria to Vancouver on December 14 of possible exposure to the deadly virus.
The affected rows on Air Canada Flight 8253 are rows 2-8 while the rows affected on Flight 8075 are rows 17-20.
Air Canada Flight 8075 is also a codeshare agreement with United Airlines and is jointly listed as United Airlines Flight 8435.
Flight 8253 and 8075 / UA 8435 were both added to the boycott list earlier today.
The BCCDC also warns those aboard Pacific Coastal Airlines Flight 108 on December 6. The rows affected by the flight are Grades 2-10.
The warnings come after the BCCDC added two flights to the list on December 17.
Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case must self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and those identified seated are at a higher risk of exposure given their proximity to the condition, according to the BCCDC.
Coronavirus symptoms include fever, chills, cough or worsening of a chronic cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, runny nose, headache, and fatigue.
