BC CDC adds Terrace flight from last week to recent data base of COVID Alert flights

Travellers using the Terrace-Kitimat airport on January 22nd will want to take note of an advisory from the BC CDC, which has flagged an Air Canada flight that day for a potential COVID-19 exposure.

The flight in question, Flight 8245 originated from Terrace to Vancouver, with rows 8-14 deemed as those most affected by the advisory.

The Thursday notice, makes for the first such COVID advisory relayed from a Northwest airport this year.

Earlier this month, we outlined the scope of a trio of similar alerts related to holiday period travel through the Terrace airport facility.

The volume of passengers through Terrace could now be on the rise with the suspension of Air Canada's Prince Rupert-Vancouver service as of January 18th

That also means that more residents of Prince Rupert and area could have been at the Terrace airport on the day listed by the BC CDC. 

On the page, the BC CDC advises that Passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

The BC CDC also offers up some advice on Self-Isolation protocols, as well as Self Assessment support and tools.
