Five flights that recently landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga had confirmed cases of COVID-19, data from the Canadian Government shows.
Between Oct. 2 and Oct. 6, 2021, federal authorities have reported that five domestic flights had a confirmed case of the virus with at least 26 rows affected.
International flight data has not been updated since Insauga reported on it earlier this week.
Since September 9, 2021, the province no longer reports all flights affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport to Canada Public Health.
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.
