The Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Health is asking passengers who traveled on WestJet flights 306 and 328, from Winnipeg and Toronto to St. John’s on September 21, to get tested for COVID-19.

It comes after public health officials in Newfoundland and Labrador reported a new confirmed case of COVID-19.

The new case, announced on Sunday, involves a man between the ages of 20 and 39 from the Eastern Health Region.

They say the case is travel related.

The man was returning home to the province of Manitoba.

Officials say he has been self-isolating since arriving and follows public health guidelines.

The province has two active cases of COVID-19 and 268 people have recovered from the virus.
