The federal government says travellers may have been exposed to COVID-19 on 19 new flights recently at Pearson Airport.
Between March 24 and 26, it’s reported that six domestic flights were affected, including three that departed the airport and three that arrived at the airport.
The remaining 13 flights were all international flights landing at Pearson between March 24 and 28.
At least 123 rows were affected across all the flights.
According to the federal government, a row is considered affected if it’s three rows 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.
