YVR Had Three Air Canada Flights With COVID-19 Cases On Board Last Week

Both international and domestic flights.

B.C. continues to see YVR flights with COVID-19 exposures and there are even more you should know about if you've been flying into Vancouver recently.

On Sunday, August 2, the BCCDC tweeted that two more Air Canada flights to YVR had people test positive for COVID-19 on board and they are from major cities across Canada, plus one from across the Pacific.

If you are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, Public Health contacts you directly to let you know. In cases where not everyone can be reached, Regional Health Authorities are posting public exposure information online.


These Air Canada flights are: 311 from Montreal to Vancouver on Friday, July 24; 007 from Vancouver to Hong Kong on Sunday, July 26; 204 from Vancouver to Calgary on Monday, July 27; and 343 from Ottawa to Vancouver on Wednesday, July 29.

The BCCDC lists all the flights on their public exposures website and includes which rows on the planes were the most likely to be affected.
