Updated case information is now available about travel by an individual previously announced as a positive COVID-19 case on June 29. The individual was a passenger on Air Canada flight AC 295 from Winnipeg to Vancouver on June 19, not on June 18 as previously reported. Affected rows on that flight are rows 19 to 25.
In addition, people in rows 31 to 37 on flight AC 122 from Vancouver to Toronto on June 21 are considered a close contact and are at risk of exposure.
Individuals in affected rows are advised to self-isolate for 14 days following the flight and monitor for symptoms. Passengers on this flight, but not in the affected seats, should self-monitor for symptoms. If symptoms develop, people should self-isolate and get tested.
While public health assesses the risk to others as low, it is sharing this information to ensure people are aware and know to seek testing if symptoms develop.
