HIGH-RISK EXPOSURE ON AN AIRPLANE
If you wrapped up the Thanksgiving weekend by flying into Timmins from Toronto on Monday night, you might have been exposed to COVID-19. The health unit says there’s a potential high risk exposure to anyone on Air Canada Jazz flight 8289 that left Toronto at 9:10 that night.
Passengers in rows 15 to 19 should self-isolate for ten days, get tested, and call the health unit. Others should self-monitor for ten days and isolate and be tested if symptoms appear.
