A “series of unfortunate events” resulted in an American couple spending two extra days in quarantine, not being able to enjoy the island, missing their return flight home and each having to part with $1 000.

At the same time, Magistrate Elwood Watts has urged quarantine hotels to inform their guests that quarantine means in their rooms and not about the property.

Nicole Elizabeth Bonds, of the Bronx, and Alberto Luis Temple, of Brooklyn, both in New York, pleaded guilty yesterday to contravening Paragraph (25), Clause (a) of the Emergency Management (COVID-19) (Curfew) (No. 11) Directive 2021, in that they being people in quarantine at the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados, did leave the room in which they were quarantined without the consent of the Chief Medical Officer on June 24.

They were each fined $1 000 forthwith, which they paid. (RA)
