Probe into report of tourist leaving quarantine
Police have launched a probe into a visitor allegedly leaving a COVID-19 quarantine facility without permission today.
The visitor, who arrived on a flight from the United Kingdom, had been tested at Grantley Adams International Airport for the viral illness and placed in quarantine while awaiting results.
According to the protocol, all arriving passengers tested at the port of entry must remain in quarantine until their results are known.
It is alleged that the woman, whose results subsequently revealed she was negative, left the facility before those results came back and took public transportation to a South Coast hotel.
The matter was reported to the Oistins Police Station and officers there are investigating. (BGIS)
