The flights are:

July 24: Air Canada flight 119 from Toronto to Vancouver (affected rows: 12 to 18)

July 27: WestJet flight 186 from Vancouver to Edmonton (affected rows: 2 to 8)

July 29: KLM flight 681 from Amsterdam to Vancouver (affected rows: 31 to 35)

 “Where information on affected rows is available, passengers seated in these rows should be considered to be at higher risk of exposure due to their proximity to the case,” reads the BCCDC exposure webpage.

Anyone who travelled on the affected flights should self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

Those who travelled outside of Canada are required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, under the Quarantine Act.
