Nova Scotia’s public health agency says people may have been exposed to COVID-19 last week on a flight from Toronto to Halifax.
The agency says the potential exposure occurred June 26th on WestJet flight WS 248.
The flight left Toronto at 10:00 a.m. and landed in Halifax at 1:04 p.m. that day.
The health agency says anyone on the flight may have been exposed to COVID-19, but passengers in seats A to C in rows 16 through 21 are at greater risk of exposure.
Officials are asking those passengers to call 811 for advice and to self-monitor for potential COVID-19 symptoms.
Nova Scotia has reported 1,063 cases of COVID-19 to date, including a new case that was identified on June 30th.
