In total, passengers on eight international flights that touched down in Montreal could have been exposed to COVID-19, according to the Government of Canada. Four 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 methods of travel methods that have arrived or departed from Montreal.

Most recently, an August 26 Air Canada flight (AC835) departing from Geneva to Montreal was added to the list as well as a domestic flight to Toronto (AC481) on August 22.

Internationally, Montreal has potential exposures coming in from Istanbul, Pointe-a-Pitre, Mexico City, Zurich, Doha, Guatemala City, and Geneva.

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

All possible infected domestic flights took off from Montreal, bound for Toronto. Affected rows have been identified for all Air Canada flights.

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.
