N.L. advising passengers on Air Canada flight from Toronto get tested
Newfoundland and Labrador public health officials are asking passengers on an Air Canada flight from Toronto to Deer Lake to get a COVID-19 test.
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Newfoundland and Labrador public health officials are asking passengers on an Air Canada flight from Toronto to Deer Lake to get a COVID-19 test.
In a release Friday, officials say passengers who travelled on Air Canada Flight 7484 from Toronto to Deer Lake on Oct. 12 should call 811 to arrange for a test.
Officials say they're asking passengers to get tested out of an abundance of caution.
The request stems from a new case announced Thursday affecting a man between 20 and 39 years old who returned to the province from work in Alberta.
On Thursday, officials said the man was self-isolating and contact tracing was underway.
Newfoundland and Labrador has nine active cases of COVID-19 and has had in total confirmed 288 cases, including four deaths.
