Two Air Canada flights into Kelowna last week had people on board who potentially were infected with COVID-19.

The B.C. Centre for Disease control identified two sections of Air Canada flight 1125 from Toronto that possibly had infections. Those were between rows three and 16 with rows three and four and between rows 12-16 highlighted.

Air Canada flight 8414 on Jan. 5 from Vancouver had a possible exposure between rows four and 10.

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 centre's website here.

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.

For individuals who need assistance or cannot read the list of public exposures can call 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319).

Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, according to the centre.
