Canadians who have been flying this month should check a list of international and domestic flights that have had confirmed cases COVID-19.

As of July 1, there have been 17 recorded cases of exposure to the virus on international flights and 14 domestic flights, according to a list posted to this federal government web page.

The exposures include Air Canada flight 8421, which departed from Kelowna to Vancouver on July 6.

The government said passengers who may have been in close contact with any of the impacted rows on the planes may be at risk of exposure.

If you think you were exposed, the public health officials say you must quarantine or self-isolate for 14 days.
