Flights continue to arrive in Canada with positive Covid-19 cases despite strict measures
Despite the Canadian government’s best efforts to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control by doing things like closing the U.S.-Canada borders and instituting a strict, mandatory 14-day quarantine, international flights continue to arrive with confirmed Covid-19 cases aboard.
The government reports on its COVID-19 travel advice website that at least 65 international flights from destinations abroad like Turkey, Germany and the U.S. have arrived in Canada with passengers aboard who have tested positive for the coronavirus. A similar number of domestic flights have also been reported as having passengers with Covid-19 on board.
In response to the growing number of coronavirus cases entering the country, the government has set up a specialized website that lets travelers on flights (both domestic and international), cruises and trains know the locations where they may have been exposed to Covid-19.

The website states that: “You may have been exposed to COVID-19 during recent travel, such as by airplane, cruise ship or train (any public conveyance). Being aware of the risk can help you take the necessary steps to protect your health and the health of others around you. You can see if you may have been exposed to COVID-19 during your travels by checking your flight, cruise or train trip below.”
