Two days later, United Airlines flight 5747 from San Francisco to Vancouver had a COVID-positive passenger between rows one and four.

The third flight took place on Sept. 8 with service from Vancouver to Toronto. Air Canada flight 112's affected rows were 15 to 21.

"If you are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, Public Health contacts you directly to let you know," wrote the BC CDC. "In cases where not everyone can be reached, Regional Health Authorities are posting public exposure information online."

Anyone in close proximity of these rows is urged to monitor symptoms and potentially self-isolate for 14 days. For the full COVID-19 exposure list, click here.
