Another flight to Kelowna had a passenger aboard with a confirmed case COVID-19, meaning those seated nearby will have to self monitor for symptoms for the next two weeks.

There was a potential exposure on WestJet 183, flying from Calgary to Kelowna on Oct. 30, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control reported Nov. 1. The rows affected are 12 to 18.

In addition to that flight, there was another potential COVID-19 exposure on Oct. 19 aboard United Airlines 466, travelling from Denver to Vancouver and on Oct. 21, Air Canada 103, travelling from Toronto to Vancouver.

Travel outside of Canada is still not recommended at this time. All passengers who have travelled outside of Canada are required to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon their arrival. 

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