Two more possible COVID-19 exposures on Kelowna flights

January 07, 2021 - 4:40 PM

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control says two more Kelowna flights have had possible COVID-19 exposures.

WestJet flight 253, flying from Calgary to Kelowna had a potential COVID-19 exposure on Jan. 2, affecting rows three to nine.

WestJet flight 3255, flying from Edmonton to Kelowna Jan. 1 also had a potential exposure affecting rows 12-19.

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.
