Published April 3, 2021 at 5:45 pm
The federal government says travellers may have been exposed to COVID-19 on 20 new flights recently at Pearson Airport.
That includes 12 flights within Canada, seven of which departed Pearson and five of which landed at Pearson between March 29 and April 1.
The remaining eight flights were international flights, all landing at the airport from abroad between March 28 and 30.
A number of rows were affected across all flights.
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.Insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
