Passengers on five international flights that touched down in Montreal could have been exposed to COVID-19, according to the Canadian government.

Three domestic flights that departed from Montreal and one that landed at YUL could also have led to a virus exposure.

On the Government of Canada website, officials have updated a list that features which flights with confirmed coronavirus cases have arrived or departed from Montreal.

On July 16, an Air Canada flight (AC871) from Paris that touched down in Montreal had at least one infected case. Two July 18 flights had cases as well, one from Mexico City (AM680) and one from Frankfurt (AC875). Consecutive day flights from Doha also had at least one case, both of which landed in Montreal.

The Government of Canada specified which rows could have been affected.
