Pin It

A traveller who breached quarantine after attending a day 15 PCR test site has been warned for intended prosecution.

Rather than returning directly home to receive their results the traveller, stopped at a number of public places on the way home. This was in contravention of an agreement all returning travellers must sign with Travel Cayman.

‘It is important that travellers abide by their agreement to remain in quarantine until they are cleared by public health,” comments Dr Tasha Ebanks-Garcia, who heads the Travel Cayman programme.

Meanwhile health officials note that a person can test positive at their day 15 test following a negative result on entry and as such still able to transmit the virus

It has since been determined that the traveller did not pose a public health risk at the time of the breach.
