There's been another Kelowna flight with a potential COVID-19 exposure.

On Dec 4, Air Canada flight 8411 from Kelowna to Vancouver had an exposure, the BC Centre for Disease Control reported.

Other potential exposures were. Dec 5,  Delta flight 3702, from Seattle to Vancouver, on Dec 5 Flair Air flight 8186, from Calgary to Vancouver, Dec 8 WestJet flight 139 from Calgary to Vancouver and Dec 10 Air Canada flight 551, from Los Angeles to Vancouver.

Since March 27, passengers seated near a case of COVID-19 who was recognized after arrival will no longer be directly notified of their potential exposure. Instead, that information is posted online on the BCCDC website.

Where information on affected rows is available, passengers seated in those rows should be considered to be at higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case.
