Anyone who was on one of the flights should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for two weeks, look for tests and self-isolate if necessary, according to the BCCDC.

Passengers seated in the rows listed are considered to be at greater risk due to their proximity to a confirmed case of coronavirus.

Travelers arriving in British Columbia from other countries must self-isolate for two weeks upon arrival. Passengers on domestic flights with cases of COVID-19 on board are not required to self-isolate.

Health officials in British Columbia are not directly contacting people who were sitting near someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 on a flight. Instead, health authorities are posting notices of affected flights online.
