Pearson Airport in Mississauga sees 6 more flights land with COVID-19
The federal government is reporting that seven more flights were recently affected by COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, including one that departed the airport and six that landed.
One domestic flight departed the airport for Vancouver on June 12. Six international flights landed from abroad between June 9 and 12.
At least 37 rows were affected by COVID-19 across all seven 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.
