6 more flights land from abroad with COVID-19 at Pearson Airport in Mississauga
The federal government is reporting that six more flights have landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga with confirmed COVID-19 cases.
All six flights were international, landing at the airport from July 12 to 15.
At least 18 rows were affected, with three flights reporting unknown rows.
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.
Fully vaccinated Canadians returning to Mississauga’s Pearson Airport are no longer required to quarantine for two weeks.
All flight data is listed on the federal government’s website.
