Anyone who was on the affected flights should self-monitor for symptoms of the coronavirus and seek testing and self-isolate if any develop.
Travellers arriving in B.C. on international flights are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival. Domestic travellers are not required to isolate, but B.C. health officials have been recommending against non-essential travel during the pandemic’s second wave.
Health officials in B.C. no longer directly contact people who were seated near someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19. Instead, health authorities post notices online about flights with confirmed cases.
