Passengers on Air Canada Flight Asked to Get COVID-19 Test

There was another new case of COVID-19 on Tuesday.

As a result of the latest case, the Department of Health and Community Services is asking passengers who travelled on Air Canada Flight 8996 from Halifax to St. John’s arriving Thursday, November 19 to call 811 to arrange COVID-19 testing.

The request is made out of an abundance of caution.
