In the last two weeks, eight Kelowna and Kamloops flights have carried passengers with COVID-19.

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control asks passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

Passengers are not notified if they are seated near a person with the disease. Instead, the Centre for Disease Control posts an updated list of flight exposures on its website.

WestJet flight 479, flying from Calgary to Kelowna Oct.16, had an exposure affecting rows 13 to 19.

Air Canada flight 1130, from Kelowna to Toronto, had an exposure affecting rows 19 to 26, Oct. 15.
