BCCDC flags 14 Vancouver flights exposed to COVID-19

Passengers who travelled aboard these Metro Vancouver flights are encouraged to self-monitor for symptoms
The BCCDC has identified more coronavirus exposures aboard planes to and from Vancouver despite federal restrictions on travel.

Exposures to the coronavirus (COVID-19) aboard planes to and from Vancouver continue despite restrictions on travel and constant requests to not go on any non-essential trips out of the province.

The British Columbia Centre for Disease Control keeps a running total of flights exposed to COVID-19 and regularly posts updates to their social media channels. Over the past two weeks, the BCCDC has identified 14 exposed flights and encourages recent airline passengers to check if they were on any of these flights.

The Canadian government's new travel measures aimed at preventing an influx of new coronavirus variants from abroad are set to begin next week, but impeding travel within the country's borders has proved slightly more difficult. 

Passengers who travelled aboard the following flights identified for carrying one or more confirmed cases of the virus are encouraged to self-monitor for symptoms for the 14-day period following their flight.
