TORONTO – Planes from the United States, India and Greece are among the last flights to land in Toronto with passengers infected with COVID-19. Since last Monday, the federal government has added at least six flights to the list of COVID-19 exposures, which is used to warn other passengers of potential contact with an infected person.

Since the start of August, more than at least 45 flights have landed in Toronto with passengers who have subsequently tested positive for the disease. Flights with COVID-19 passengers have landed at other airports across the country, including Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, but the majority have landed in Toronto.

Even though some airlines and travel agencies are re-promoting international travel, the federal government still advises Canadians against leaving the country for non-essential purposes.

For those who do, it is mandatory to self-isolate for 14 days, whether or not they show symptoms of COVID-19.

WestJet and Air Canada, two of North America’s largest airlines, resumed selling their midsize seats on July 1, after months the option was removed to facilitate physical distancing.

Passengers are not informed directly by federal public health authorities to get tested, although the government recognizes that passengers on affected flights “may have been exposed to COVID-19.”

Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick said last month that anyone concerned that they have been exposed to the disease should contact their doctor.

Flight information posted on the government website is provided by provincial and territorial health authorities, international health authorities and the public website.
