Additional flights leaving from and landing in Montreal have been added to the Government of Canada’s possible coronavirus exposure list.

Five new flights have been added since our last update on September 15.

In total, passengers on seven international flights that touched down in Montreal could have been exposed to coronavirus, according to the Government of Canada. Six domestic flights that departed from Montreal or landed at YUL could also have led to virus exposure.

On the government’s website, officials have updated a list that features confirmed coronavirus cases on various travel methods that have arrived or departed from Montreal.

Most recently, four international flights touched down in Montreal on September 11. Potential exposures came in from Paris, Doha, Istanbul, Chicago, and Brussels, Port-au-Prince, and Casablanca earlier in September.

Where applicable, the government says which rows may have been affected during flights.

Domestically, flights departing from or landing in Montreal have come from Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary since the beginning of September, with affected rows identified for most flights.

The information is collected through provincial, territorial, and international health authorities and public websites. Flights are added and removed regularly by the Government of Canada on its website.

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.
