THUNDER BAY — Public health authorities are cautioning passengers on one flight to Thunder Bay, and one flight that originated in Thunder Bay, about their possible exposure to COVID-19.

Both flights occurred earlier this month.

One was Air Canada 7934, from Thunder Bay to Toronto, on July 16. 

The advisory is directed at passengers who were seated in rows 15 to 21.

The other flight was Westjet 3219 from Toronto to Thunder Bay on July 19.

Passengers in rows 6 to 12 may have been exposed to the virus.

Affected passengers are advised to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days, isolate immediately if symptoms develop, and contact their local public health agency for guidance.
