Those who recently travelled to or from Calgary may want to pull up their flight and seat numbers.

According to the Government of Canada, there were three flights from Calgary this month with confirmed coronavirus cases, as well as one flying into YYC with a detected case.

All four flights were operated within Canada, as Calgary did not join the most updated list of international flights with known coronavirus cases.

WestJet flight WS461 from Calgary to Kelowna on August 7 saw rows 5 to 11 affected, WestJet flight WS123 from Calgary to Vancouver on August 8 saw rows 25 to 30 affected, and Air Canada flight AC152 from Calgary to Toronto on August 11 saw rows 22 to 28 affected.

The sole flight flying into Calgary with a detected case was from Edmonton on August 11, with those sitting in rows 7 to 13 on Air Canada flight AC8137 being affected.

Those who may have been sitting in affected rows should get themselves tested for coronavirus by filling out Alberta Health Services’ coronavirus self-assessment tool, and self-isolate until receiving a negative test result.
