The BC Centre for Disease Control announced today, Aug. 22, five more domestic flights with potential COVID-19 exposure and another Kelowna flight was on the list.

Anyone on an Aug 18 WestJet flight, 325, Calgary to Kelowna should be aware that there was a case of COVID-19.

The CDC also announced potential exposure on an Aug 9 WestJet, 136 frlight from Vancouver to Calgary, an Aug 10 Air Canada 214 flight from Vancouver to Calgary, an Aug 13 Air Canada 344, Vancouver to Ottawa flight and an Aug 15 Air Canada 112 Vancouver to Toronto flight.

Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

Passengers of flights with COVID-19 cases are no longer directly notified of their potential exposure. Instead, that information is posted on the BC CDC website.

This month 10 international flights with potential exposure risk have flown into B.C., and there have been 32 domestic flights with exposure risk.
