Another recent flight into Kamloops Airport carried a person with COVID-19, the BC Centre for Disease Control has confirmed.
The case was found on Air Canada flight 8194 that arrived in Kamloops from Vancouver on Nov. 6. The BCCDC warns anyone sitting in rows three through seven may have been potentially exposed.
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.
