The Canadian government says 27 flights arriving and departing from Calgary International Airport had at least one guest infected with COVID-19 on board.

Passengers who were seated in those rows should:

  • Monitor themselves for symptoms for at least 14 days;

OUTBREAK OF BRAZIL VARIANT 'TRAVEL-RELATED'

On Saturday afternoon, Alberta's chief medical officer of health warned of a "significant" outbreak of the P.1, or Brazil, variant of COVID-19 in the province.

Dr. Deena Hinshaw said it was travel-related, but shared no other details about the situation.

Many Alberta students are scheduled to head back to class next week following spring break.

In the days leading up to the holiday, both Hinshaw and other provincial officials warned Albertans against all non-essential travel plans, which could lead to further spread of infection.
