Passengers on seven international flights that touched down in Montreal could have been exposed to COVID-19, according to the Government of Canada.

Six domestic flights that departed from Montreal and three that 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 a flight departing from Moncton (AC8903) was added to the list as well as an international flight from Doha (QR763).

All of Montreal’s international flights with at least one confirmed COVID-19 case has had its affected rows identified.

Air Canada has nine total flights that departed from or arrived in Montreal with at least one confirmed case. Affected rows were identified in most cases except for a July 21 flight (AC419) that laded in Toronto and a July 20 flight (AC305) that touched down in Vancouver.

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.
