Twenty flights departing from or landing in Montreal has been added to the Government of Canada’s possible coronavirus exposure list.

Passengers on 12 international flights that touched down in Montreal could have been exposed to COVID-19, according to the Government of Canada. Eight domestic flights that departed from Montreal or landed at YUL could also have led to a virus exposure.

On the government’s website, officials have updated a list that features which flights with confirmed coronavirus cases have arrived or departed from Montreal.

Most recently, an August 6 flight departing from Mexico City (AM680) was added to the list as well as a domestic flight from Toronto (WS592) on August 7.

Where applicable, the government says which rows may have been affected per flight.

Internationally, Montreal has potential exposures coming in from Mexico City, Lisbon, Paris, Doha, Cancun, Punta Cana, and Instanbul.

Air Canada has seven total flights that departed from or arrived in Montreal with at least one confirmed case and WestJet has one. Flights with at least one coronavirus exposure came in or departed from Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, and Winnipeg.

The information is collected through provincial, territorial, and international health authorities and public websites.

Travellers are reminded that they are to self-isolate for 14 days upon entry into Canada.

“This is mandatory, whether or not you have symptoms,” the government states.

Flights are added and removed regularly by the Government of Canada on its website.
