Passengers warned of COVID-19 exposure on 4 flights into YVR

BC Centre for Disease Control has released a public warning for passengers aboard recent flights into Vancouver International Airport.

According to officials, passengers aboard the following four flights may have been exposed to the virus.

  • June 3, Delta flight 3898 from Seattle
  • June 16, Air Canada flight 217 from Saskatoon
  • June 18, Air Canada flight 557 from Los Angeles
  • June 21, Flair Airlines flight 8102 from Toronto

No information regarding specific seats was released by BC CDC, but all passengers are now being asked to self-isolate for 14-days.

On Wednesday, July 1, Air Canada and WestJet removed physically distanced seating on all flights.

Health Minister Adrian Dix was critical of the decision, calling to see evidence that its in fact safe to drop physical distancing measures.

Dr. Bonnie Henry has stated that in-flight distancing policy does not fall under her jurisdiction.
