Within the last two weeks, three Kelowna flights had possible COVID-19 exposures.

Air Canada/Jazz flight 8408, flying from Vancouver to Kelowna, June 4, had a passenger with COVID-19, affecting rows 12 to 18.

Air Canada/Jazz flight 8401 also reported an exposure, June 1, on its flight from Calgary to Kelowna, affecting rows seven to 13.

WestJet flight 3181, from Edmonton to Kelowna, May 29, also carried a person with COVID-19, affecting rows 16 to 20.

Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, according to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

"If you are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, Public Health contacts you directly to let you know. In cases where not everyone can be reached, Regional health authorities are posting public exposure information online," according to the centre.

For COVID-19 exposure updates, visit the centre's website.
