Seattle to Vancouver flight identified for coronavirus exposure

Canadian authorities have flagged a flight that left Seattle for Vancouver, BC this week for potentially having coronavirus exposure on board.

Delta’s flight DL3702 on September 20 had someone who was contagious sitting somewhere between row 1 and row 7, according to the Government of Canada.

The Canadian federal government advises anyone else who was on board, especially those nearby, to monitor for symptoms for at least 14 days after the flight and to seek testing if any develop.

Because the flight was an international arrival, most passengers should already be quarantining for 14 days as per Canadian law.

The Government of Canada updates its list of flights that carried coronavirus-positive passengers to and from that country’s airports once a day, and local health authorities no longer reach out to travellers directly.
