The BCCDC is reporting people in rows one through six are affected and should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19.

Since March, passengers seated near a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 — recognized after arrival — are not directly notified of their potential exposure. Instead, that information is posted online at bccdc.ca.

Those with COVID-19 symptoms are asked to self-isolate and to call 811 if they have questions.
