Possible measles exposure at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, Ontario and 3 other locations

At least four more flights with confirmed COVID-19 cases have landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga within the past several days, according to the federal government’s travel data.

One flight was domestic (within Canada), landing at the airport on Oct. 28.

The other three were international, landing from abroad between Oct. 23 and 26.

At least 21 rows were affected, with one flight reporting unknown rows.

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.

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