Possible COVID-19 exposure identified on flight from Mexico City to YVR

Health officials are warning of another possible COVID-19 exposure on a flight into Vancouver.

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has added Aeromexico flight 696, which flew from Mexico City to Vancouver June 25, to its online list of public exposures.

While the BCCDC doesn’t specify the total number of cases, COVID-19 cases have been identified on that flight. It’s not known how many seats – meaning other passengers on the flight – were affected.

That means that any passengers who were onboard the flight should “self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days after the flight.”

The Aeromexico flight is the fifth flight that flew into Vancouver in June to have cases of COVID-19 identified onboard.

Anyone arriving to B.C. from outside of Canada is required to self-isolate for 14 days under the federal Quarantine Act and complete a B.C. Self-Isolation Plan.

The quarantine period for the Aeromexico flight ended July 9.
