“A row is considered affected if it’s three rows behind or in front of where a seated person is confirmed to have COVID-19, and during a period when they may have been infectious to others,” reads the Government of Canada’s website.

If travellers have recently returned to Canada, they must quarantine for 14 days even if they don’t have any symptoms, and regardless of whether or not there was a confirmed COVID-19 case on their flight.
