9 more flights reported to have landed with COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga

 

The federal government is reporting 12 recent flights with confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, of which nine landed.

Four of the flights were domestic, with three departing and one landing from July 6 to 12.

The remaining eight flights were international, all landing from abroad between July 8 and 10.

At least 54 rows were affected across all 12 flights.

 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.

“Unknown” rows may be reported if the row number for the person confirmed to have COVID-19 can't be validated, or if a member of the crew is confirmed to have COVID-19.

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.

Fully vaccinated Canadians returning to Mississauga's Pearson Airport are no longer required to quarantine for two weeks.

All flight data is listed on the federal government's website.
