Nova Scotia Health Public Health advises of potential exposure to COVID-19 on two flights from Toronto to Halifax. In addition to the media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.

Anyone who has been in the specified rows and seats on the following flights are asked to continue self-isolating and immediately visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en for a COVID-19 test to book whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you.

  • Air Canada Flight 604 flies from Toronto (8:00 AM) to Halifax (11:00 AM) on January 5. Passengers in rows 22-28 of seats C, D, E and F are asked to continue self-isolating and immediately visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to avoid a COVID- 19 test to book whether you have COVID-19 symptoms or not. All other passengers on this flight should continue to self-isolate as necessary and look out for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. It is expected that anyone exposed to the virus at that time on that flight will be able to develop symptoms by January 19.
  • Swoop Flight 408, which flies from Toronto (5:30 PM) to Halifax (8:30 PM) on January 8th. Passengers in rows 16-22 of seats A, B, C and D are asked to continue to self-isolate and to visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en immediately to avoid a COVID- 19 test to book whether you have COVID-19 symptoms or not. All other passengers on this flight should continue to self-isolate as necessary and look out for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. It is expected that anyone exposed to the virus at that time on that flight will be able to develop symptoms by January 22nd.

Please remember:

Do not go straight to a COVID-19 assessment center without being prompted to do so. Please book an appointment online and don’t go to a quick pop-up site.

Currently, anyone who has traveled outside of Nova Scotia, PEI, or Newfoundland and Labrador is expected to isolate themselves alone for 14 days after arriving. If a person returning from a non-essential trip outside of Nova Scotia, PEI, or Newfoundland and Labrador cannot isolate on their own, then everyone in the house where they isolate themselves must also self-isolate.

When Nova Scotia Health Public Health makes a public notice, it is in no way a reflection of the behavior or activities of anyone named in the notice.

All Nova Scotians are advised to continue monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and to follow public health guidelines for access to care. Current information on COVID-19 can be found at novascotia.ca/coronavirus
