Flights are still coming in as several land with COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga
Two flights recently departed and three recently landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga with confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to the federal government's travel data.
Three of the flights were within Canada, with two departing and one landing during the first two days of June.
Two flights at the airport from abroad in that same timeframe.
At least 28 rows were affected across all five 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.
