Two more B.C. flights have been added to B.C. Centre for Disease Control's public the public exposures page.

On July 27 Air Canada flight 204 travelled from Vancouver to Calgary and on July 29 Air Canada 343 flew from Ottawa to Vancouver.

As of 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.

If 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.

To read the full list of flights with potential exposures go to the BCCDC website.
