A visitor to the island is now being investigated by Police after a complaint that she left a COVID-19 quarantine facility without permission earlier today.

It is alleged that the visitor, who arrived on a flight from the United Kingdom, was tested at the Grantley Adams International Airport for the viral illness and placed in quarantine while awaiting results.

According to the protocol, all arriving passengers who are 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 for the virus, 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 currently carrying out investigations.
