The federal government says travellers may have been exposed to COVID-19 on eight new flights recently at Pearson Airport.

That includes one domestic flight from Vancouver to Pearson on March 23, and seven international flights from March 21 to 24.

Of the seven international flights, all but one landed at the airport from abroad.

A number of rows were affected.

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.

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