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

Thirteen new flights have been added since our last update on September 3.

In total, passengers on seven 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 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, a September 1 Air Canada flight (AC306) departing from Vancouver to Montreal was added to the list as well as an international flight departing from Frankfurt (AC875) on August 31.

Internationally, Montreal has potential exposures coming in from Marseilles, Casablanca, Paris, Guatemala City, Geneva, Port-au-Prince, and Frankfurt.

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, Ottawa, Calgary, and Charlettetown since the end of August and the beginning of September, with affected rows identified for each.

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.
