  • Air Canada – San Francisco to YVR, July 14
  • Air Canada – Montreal to YVR, July 20

This comes after BCCDC added four new flights to the list, which flew into YVR Airport, over the weekend.

Anyone on these flights should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after arrival. People arriving in B.C. from international destinations must also self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival.

B.C. health officials are no longer directly contacting people who sat near a confirmed case of COVID-19 on a domestic flight. However, they are posting all flights that have been exposed to COVID-19 on the BCCDC website.
