Within the last two weeks, seven planes landing and departing from Kelowna International Airport carried passengers with COVID-19.

These include: Air Canada/Jazz flight 8405, May 1, from Calgary to Kelowna, with an exposure affecting rows five to 11, Air Canada/Jazz flight 8405, April 29, from Calgary to Kelowna, with an exposure affecting rows one through seven, Air Canada/Jazz flight 8420 on April 28, from Vancouver to Kelowna saw an exposure affecting rows one through seven, WestJet flight 3375, on April 28, from Calgary to Kelowna had an exposure affecting rows one through six, WestJet flight 3342 on April 27 from Calgary to Kelowna saw an exposure affecting rows seven through 13, Air Canada/Jazz flight 8408, April 26, from Kelowna to Calgary had an exposure affecting rows eight through14 and Air Canada/Jazz flight 8414, April 24, from Vancouver to Kelowna had an exposure affecting rows six through 12.

Passengers exposed to someone with COVID-19 are not directly notified of their potential exposure, according to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

Instead, that information is posted on the centre’s website. Where information on affected rows is available, passengers seated in these rows should be considered to be at higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case, according to the centre.

Anyone arriving in British Columbia from outside of Canada is required to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon their arrival. 

For individuals who need assistance or cannot read the list of public exposures can call 1-888-COVID19.
