Health authorities have detected several more flights out of Vancouver’s YVR International Airport that have carried confirmed cases of COVID-19.

On Wednesday evening, the BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC) listed three more flights that have been added to its ongoing list of public exposures.

One flight took place on July 20 and is Delta flight 4524 from Seattle to Vancouver. Two additional flights were also identified on July 29: Delta flight 3898 from Seattle to Vancouver and Aeromexico flight 696 from Mexico City to Vancouver.

The latest additions make for 33 flights over the month of July that have been identified with cases of coronavirus.

Any passengers that were on a flight with a coronavirus case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days. If necessary, seek the help of your family doctor or call 8-1-1, then seek testing and self-isolate.

The announcement comes on the same day that Vancouver Coastal Health announced a public exposure at Lions Bay Beach Park.
