The Canadian government has identified an additional two flights carrying passengers diagnosed with COVID-19 into Vancouver International Airport.
In June, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) reported that six flights landing at YVR had passengers who tested positive for the virus.
Monday's update now makes a total of eight flights carrying at least one passenger with COVID-19 into Vancouver:
No information regarding specific seats was released by BC CDC, but all passengers aboard the identified flights are now being ordered to self-isolate for 14-days.
Reminder: It is mandatory to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days if your are arriving in British Columbia from outside of Canada. You must also complete/register a self-isolation plan: https://t.co/Hvl8jZKFvJ— BCCDC (@CDCofBC) July 4, 2020
Air Canada and WestJet removed physically distanced seating plans on all flights at the beginning of July, a move criticized by BC Health Minister Adrian Dix.
Currently, all passengers landing from outside of Canada are required to provided border agents with their plans to self-isolate for 14-days.
There is no mandatory self-isolation for those flying within Canada.
