Toronto Flights With COVID-19 Were Reported Last Week

If you've recently travelled to the 6ix, you might want to check yourself for symptoms. The Government of Canada is warning of multiple Toronto flights with COVID-19 that travelled last week. Anyone who has flown into Canada must self-isolate for 14 days. 

According to the Government of Canada's website, multiple domestic and international flights that travelled through Toronto were later reported to have been exposed to the disease. 

Out of the ones that were reported, four were domestic and five were international.

They also had departures and arrivals in Philidelphia, New Delhi and Charlotte.

If you think you may have travelled on one of these flights, you can check which rows may have been exposed.

"If you think you might have COVID-19, use our self-assessment tool to find out what to do. Always follow the recommendations of your local public health authority," reads a statement from the website. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, airlines and airports have continued to add additional safety measures to help protect passengers. 

Air Canada announced back in May that they would start to take the temperatures of all passengers who were boarding their planes. 

Pearson Airport has also followed suit and announced that they would send travellers home if their temperature was too high. 

The popular hub also announced that they would have cleaning robots and disinfectant walk-thrus to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
