The Government of Canada has added three more flights that landed at Vancouver International Airport to its list of routes with coronavirus exposure.

That means that someone on board the flights tested positive for coronavirus recently after landing at YVR.

The most recent affected flight was Air Canada’s AC241 flight from Edmonton to Vancouver on October 14. The sick passenger was sitting somewhere between row 23 and 29.

The government also flagged Flair’s F8513 from Saskatoon to Vancouver on October 12. The infected person was sitting row 16 and row 22.

The third flight, also on October 12, was KLM Royal Dutch’s KL 681 from Amsterdam to Vancouver. The coronavirus-positive passenger was in first class, somewhere between row 1 and row 5.

Anyone aboard the mentioned flights should monitor for coronavirus symptoms for 14 days after exposure.
