47 rows across 8 recent flights at Pearson Airport in Mississauga were affected by COVID-19
At least 47 rows across eight recent flights at Pearson Airport were affected by COVID-19 in Mississauga, according to the federal government’s travel data.
Seven of the flights were within Canada, with five departing Pearson and two landing between May 26 and 30.
One flight landed at the airport from abroad on May 31.
It’s believed that at least 47 rows are affected, with some flights reporting unknown rows.
Federal officials announced on May 21 that the current ban on flights from India and Pakistan, two hotspot countries, will be extended to June 21 in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19 and variants into Canada.
Flights that are considered essential, such as those carrying health personnel and vaccines, will still be allowed entry.
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.
All flight data is listed on the federal government's website.
