Vancouver – The BC Center for Disease Control has recently added more aircraft to its list of COVID-19 exposures, some of which have not been advertised on its Twitter account.

The BCCDC said four planes were added on Thursday and six more on Saturday, but the five planes that landed on December 1 were added to the list without a regular tweet without announcing their inclusion.

It is unclear when the aircraft in question were included in the list. A BCCDC spokesperson said it was the Centre’s standard practice to post flights on a website and share that information on its Twitter account.

“In this case, the stage is missing,” the spokesman said in an email to CTV News Vancouver.

The details of the five December 1 flights are as follows.

  • WestJet Flight 141 from Edmonton to Vancouver (rows 12 to 18)

  • WestJet Flight 3171 from Calgary to Comox (Rows 16 to 19)

  • WestJet Flight 3185 from Vancouver to Victoria (rows 12 to 18)

  • Air Canada Flight 8577 from Saskatoon to Vancouver (Rows 19 to 25)

  • Delta Flight 3569 from Vancouver to Seattle (rows not reported)

Other recently added flights:

  • November 29: WestJet Flight 706 from Vancouver to Toronto (rows six to 12)

  • December 2: Air Canada / Jazz Flight 8413 from Kilovana to Vancouver (rows one through five)

  • December 2: Air Canada Flight 222 from Vancouver to Calgary (rows 27 to 33)

  • December 2: Air Canada Flight 344 from Vancouver to Ottawa (rows 12 to 16)

  • December 2: Air Canada Flight 555 from Los Angeles to Vancouver (Rows 26 to 32)

  • December 3: Swipe flight 407 from Abbotsford to Toronto (rows 17 to 23)

  • December 4: Flyer Flight 8102 from Calgary to Vancouver (rows 10 to 16)

  • December 5: Flyer Flight 8186 from Calgary to Vancouver (rows 13 to 19)

  • December 6: United Airlines Flight 4769 from San Francisco to Vancouver (rows seven to 13)

  • December 7: Air Canada Flight 103 from Toronto to Vancouver (Rows 38 to 44)

Passengers arriving in BC on international flights must be self-isolated for 14 days upon landing. Domestic travelers are not required to self-segregate, although health officials across Canada are discouraging all unnecessary travel in the second wave of the epidemic.

Anyone on any affected aircraft should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, testing and self-isolation if anything develops.

Passengers sitting in the listed rows are considered to be at higher risk due to being close to a confirmed case of the disease.

Health officials in BC do not directly contact people on flights with coronavirus cases. Instead, public notifications are posted on the BCCDC website and, in general, shared on Twitter.
