Flights still coming in with COVID-19 as 4 land with cases at Pearson Airport in Mississauga
The federal government is reporting that four more flights were recently affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga.
Two domestic flights landed at the airport from Montreal and Vancouver on June 14.
Two international flights landed from Mexico and Colombia between June 15 and 17.
At least 25 rows were affected by COVID-19 across all four flights.
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.
