The federal government added this flight to their list on Friday. It advises other passengers, especially those seated in the rows closest to the coronavirus-infected individual, to monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days after exposure.

Health agencies don’t contact people directly who may have been exposed on flights. Those who have flown recently are advised to check the government’s online list in the days following their trip.
