VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) — Someone who works at the B.C. legislature had been on a flight with another person who tested positive for COVID-19.

The person was on a flight on July 13 from Vancouver to Victoria where another person was later found to be infected.

While there’s no word if the person is a staffer or an MLA, they are said to be doing well and aren’t showing any symptoms as they self-isolate.

Sanitation of the legislature started Tuesday and it’s believed the risk of transmission is low.
