The BC CDC has added to its list of flights with possible COVID-19 exposures.

On July 10 there was a COVID-19 exposure on Delta 3569, a flight from Vancouver to Seattle. The following day, July 11, American Airlines 1415, flying from Dallas to Vancouver had a COVID-19 exposure.  Then,  July 12, Air Canada 214, flying from  Vancouver to Calgary had exposure and on  July 17, Air Canada 855, flying from London to Vancouver had one as well.

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. \

The BCCDC said 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.

There are 113,517 confirmed cases in Canada, with 15 cases being presumptive, 113,502 confirmed including 8,885 deaths, 99,113 resolved.

The hardest hit Canadian province is still Quebec with 58,414 confirmed cases, including 5,666 deaths, 50,713 resolved.

British Columbia has had 3,419 confirmed cases including 191 deaths, 2,934 resolved cases.
