A group of international flights land in Canada, some with COVID-19 patients
The federal government confirms about 35 international flights arrived in Canada between the dates of August 1 to August 13 with passengers tested positive for COVID-19 after one day of their arrival.
Requirements and health measures remain the same for Canadians. The government is advising residents not to leave the country except for essential purposes.
All travellers must undergo self-isolation for 14 days once they arrive in the country with or without experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
The government confirmed 24 flights landed in Toronto, 12 in Montreal, three in Vancouver, and two in Calgary. Although passengers are not directed by the public health authorities to get tested, the government reminds those onboard may have been exposed.
Flights with confirmed COVID-19 patients are listed and updated on the government’s website.
