The domestic routes with the most frequent exposure are ones that travel between two urban centres, such as Vancouver to Toronto, or Calgary to Toronto.

International flights with infected passengers on board included destinations like India, Poland, Germany, Mexico, and more.

Last month, over 70 flights with confirmed cases landed in Canada.

If you've travelled into Canada from abroad, you are still expected to undergo 14 days of mandatory quarantine.

However, after conducting a study at Pearson Airport, Air Canada says that this mandatory quarantine should become test-based instead.
