|Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 on two Air Canada flights. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are now listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.|
Anyone who was on the following flights in the specified rows/seats is asked to continue to self-isolate for the 14-days required, and closely monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19:
Passengers on Air Canada flight #144 travelling on Dec. 9 from Calgary (11:54 a.m.) to Toronto (5:22 p.m.) in rows 20-26, seats J, K and L. It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on this flight on the named date may develop symptoms up to, and including, Dec 23.
Passengers on Air Canada flight #8210 traveling from Toronto (Dec 9. at 8:55 p.m.) to Sydney (Dec. 10 at 12:10 a.m.) in rows 22-27, seats D and F. It is anticipated that anyone exposed to the virus on this flight on the named date may develop symptoms up to, and including, Dec 24.
Please do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so and do not go to a pop-up rapid testing location.
Currently, anyone traveling to Nova Scotia from outside of the Atlantic Provinces is expected to self-isolate alone for 14 days after arriving. If a person traveling for non-essential reasons enters Nova Scotia from outside Atlantic Canada, then everyone in the home where they are self-isolating will have to self-isolate as well.
When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behavior or activities of those named in the notification.
All Nova Scotians are advised to continue monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and are urged to follow Public Health guidelines on how to access care.
