A pair of COVID-19 exposure notices were issued Sunday for Air North flights between Whitehorse and Vancouver by public health officials in Yukon.
The notices impact passengers aboard flight 4N538 departing at 9:10 a.m. from Whitehorse to Vancouver on Aug. 26 or flight 4N524 departing at 8:10 a.m. from Vancouver to Whitehorse on Aug. 29.
A statement from Dr. Catherine Elliot, the territory's acting chief medical health officer, said people on either plane should monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days since the flight, and should arrange for testing if symptoms develop.
Those who are not fully vaccinated should "especially" monitor for symptoms, she said.
