Canada has a searchable database of flights with coronavirus exposure

The Canadian government now has a searchable database of flights, trains, and cruise ships that had COVID-19-positive passengers on them.

You can type in your flight number or search for a keyword to see if you may have been exposed to coronavirus.

“You may be at risk of COVID-19 exposure if you have recently travelled or attended a public gathering where cases have been confirmed,” the new webpage says. “Being aware of your exposure risk can help you take the necessary steps to protect your health and the health of others around you.”

The tool gathers data from provincial health authorities, international health authorities, and public websites to compile a list of places where exposure to the virus was possible. It only includes events and flights that happened after March 13, 2020.

To see if your recent flight had a coronavirus patient on board, check the database online. In some cases, it contains details about what rows of the flight are at risk of exposure.
