“broke a strict 14-day quarantine rule to attend her boyfriend’s jet-skiing competition”
In the United States, people are being let out of jail because of COVID. None of this makes sense.
The Insider reports via Yahoo News:
An American college student has been sentenced to 4 months in a Cayman Islands prison after violating COVID-19 quarantine rules
A college student from Georgia is facing four months in prison in the Cayman Islands after she broke a strict 14-day quarantine rule to attend her boyfriend’s jet-skiing competition.
Skylar Mack, a pre-med student at Mercer University, arrived on the British Overseas Territory on November 27, where she was supposed to undergo a government-mandated quarantine period lasting 14 days.
But, Mack – who according to her family tested negative for the coronavirus after taking a test on arrival – broke her isolation two days later when her boyfriend picked her up to attend a jet-skiing competition he was participating in.
“In her mind, as long as she stayed away from everybody, she would be OK to go watch her friend’s race, it was their big national finals race, the last race of the year, big deal,” Mack’s grandmother, Jeanne, told CNN on Friday.
During the competition, Mack was recognized by some of the attendees, who then reported her breach of isolation to local officials.
