Seven more flights land with COVID-19 cases at Pearson Airport

Published July 7, 2021 at 5:40 pm

The federal government is reporting seven recent flights that landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga, as well as two which departed, with COVID-19 cases.

Four of the flights were domestic, landing at or departing the airport between June 25 and July 1.

The other five were international and all landed from abroad on July 2 and 3.

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.

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