Passengers who were in those rows 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.

The Nov. 6 flight is the second reported to have landed at YKA with a confirmed COVD-19 case this month. West Jet flight 3111 from Calgary landed at YKA on Nov. 7 with someone on board having tested positive for COVID-19.
