Travel Cayman responds to alleged breach
An alleged breach of quarantine protocols involving a traveller quarantining at residence and a member of the public has been reported to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and is currently under investigation.
The Travel Cayman Mobile Compliance team was alerted to a picture on social media depicting the traveller interacting with a member of the public and not observing proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and social distancing. The local contact was placed in quarantine at the instruction of the Medical Officer of Health and both persons were warned for intended prosecution.
Public Health has confirmed that contact tracing, as well as PCR testing, has been completed and would like to reassure that there is no cause for a public health concern.
Travellers in quarantine are not allowed to have visitors and are required to declare to Travel Cayman all occupants of the property in their travel application prior to their arrival to the country.
The public and travellers are reminded that anyone found to be in breach of the mandatory quarantine provisions will be warned for intended prosecution and is liable on conviction to a fine of up to ten thousand dollars and imprisonment for up to two years.
