WINNIPEG - Manitoba Shared Health says passengers of several flights that passed through Winnipeg may have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The provincial government says all impacted aircraft were flown by Air Canada, and included passengers who had symptoms and were confirmed positive for COVID-19.
The province says epidemiologists consider those who were seated in certain seats to be close contacts, and must self-isolate for 14 days and watch for symptoms. Those who were passengers on the flights but weren’t sitting in the seats that are outlined are advised to still watch for symptoms, but only need to self-isolate if they do experience any symptoms.
The flights are:
