93 rows across 14 flights were recently affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport, according to the federal government’s travel data.
A majority were within Canada, with 12 domestic flights departing or arriving between May 10 and 14.
Two flights landed at Pearson from abroad on May 12-13.
According to the federal government, a row is considered affected if it’s three rows (two rows for business class) behind or in front of a row where a seated person is confirmed to have COVID-19 “during a period when they may have been infectious to others.”
Passengers who were sitting in the affected rows — or all passengers on the flight if rows aren’t specified — are advised to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and contact public health if they start showing symptoms of the virus.
Effective April 22, the federal government has suspended incoming passenger flights from India and Pakistan for a month as cases of COVID-19 surge in both countries.
All flight data is listed on the federal government’s website.
