26 domestic Toronto flights with travellers onboard that have tested positive for COVID-19 afterwards


Air Canada believes a test-based strategy may be a safe alternative to the 14-day quarantine

TORONTO, ON., Oct. 6, 2020 /CNW/ — According to data from the Canadian government, at least 28 domestic flights between Sept. 21 and Oct. 2 have had a traveller onboard that has after-the-fact tested positive for COVID-19.

At least 26 of the flights either landed in or took off from Toronto, which has been categorized as a COVID-19 hotspot due to the soaring number of infections reported each day.

Meanwhile, Air Canada is pushing to drop the 14-day mandatory quarantine period for travellers returning to the country in favour of a test-based approach. They posted on Instagram today saying they believe a test-based strategy may be a safe alternative to a 14-day quarantine after an international flight.

“Over 15,000 voluntary COVID-19 tests have been taken by international customers arriving at Toronto Pearson Airport as part of a McMaster HealthLabs study. The preliminary results? Over 99% have tested negative. We believe that a test-based strategy may be a safe alternative to the 14-day quarantine,” reads the post from Air Canada.

There are also 26 international flights impacted by a positive case of the novel coronavirus.
