Travel Cayman responds to further breach
A traveller who had previously breached a government sponsored quarantine facility committed a second breach again last night, Friday 11th December.
The breach was for a brief period and the traveller has since been returned to the quarantine at residence. Due to unique circumstances the Medical Officer of Health permitted the individual to complete the mandatory isolation period at home with family, under 24-hour security. Surveillance has now been further stepped up and the traveller is being supported at the property.
Dr.Tasha Ebanks-Garcia, Director Travel Cayman, commented ‘not all traveller cases are the same and due to the unique circumstances of this individual’s case the team worked closely with the family in support of the decision on where to isolate. The public’s safety is our number one priority at the forefront of all our decisions’
Public Health confirmed that contact tracing has been completed and would like to reassure the public that there is no cause for public health concern. The Royal Cayman Island Police Service (RCIPS) noted that this is an ongoing investigation and a completed file will be sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for a decision.
