Passengers who flew from Edmonton to Victoria this month may have been exposed to a case of COVID-19, the BC Centre for Disease Control has reported.
On Sept. 6, Swoop flight 209 had a case of the virus onboard and passengers who sat in rows 14 to 20 are the most likely to have been exposed. They’re asked to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, which include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, the loss of sense of smell or appetite, muscle aches, fatigue and headaches, diarrhea and nausea or vomiting.
The new exposure brings Victoria to three so far in September. Several more flight exposures were also added to August’s list, bringing last month’s record-breaking total to 27. In July, there were six.
