All three flights arrived in Victoria from Calgary since the start of the New Year. Passengers aboard each flight are asked to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, particularly if they were in specific rows listed below.
The first flight, WestJet 3235, landed in Victoria from Calgary on Jan. 2. Passengers in rows 16 to 19 are at an added risk of potential exposure, according to the BCCDC.
The second flight, WestJet 449, arrived in Victoria on Jan. 3 and particularly impacts passengers seated in rows 16 to 22.
