Published July 3, 2021 at 4:49 pm
The federal government is reporting two recent flights that landed at Pearson Airport in Mississauga with COVID-19 cases.
Both flights were international, landing from abroad on Tuesday, June 29. Seven rows were affected on each flight.
No recent domestic flights were reported.
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.
