18-Year-Old American Girl Jailed For “Selfish & Arrogant” Breach Of COVID Curfew In Cayman Islands

An American college student has been jailed by the Royal Cayman Islands Police for blatantly violating COVID-19 restrictions, according to CBS News

Skylar Mack, an 18-year-old college student at Mercer University in Georgia, was slapped with a two-month sentence for violating quarantine to attend her boyfriend’s jet ski competition

Mack’s attorney Jonathan Hughes told CBS: 

“Whilst it was our hope that Skylar would be able to return home to resume her studies in January, we accept the decision of the court and look forward to receiving its written reasons in due course,” Hughes said.

Along with Mack, her boyfriend, Vanjae Ramgeet, was also sentenced to two months by the Cayman Islands Grand Court for breaking quarantine.

After flying to Grand Cayman in late November, Mack was ordered by authorities to self-isolate for two weeks and given a wristband to track her movements. She signed a document to remain inside for the quarantine’s duration, but on day number two, she was spotted at a jet ski competition with Ramgeet, who lives on the island, without the wristband. 

It was not clear by CBS who reported the couple for breaking quarantine. 

At the hearing on Dec. 15, Judge Roger Chapple explained his decision for jailing Mack and Ramgeet: 

This was as flagrant a breach as could be imagined; it was borne of selfishness and arrogance,” Chapple said, according to local newspaper Cayman Compass. “This was entirely deliberate and planned, as evidenced by her desire to switch her wristband the day before to a looser one that she was then able to remove.” 

The Grand Cayman has been a hot spot for Americans fleeing the country amid a “dark covid winter.” Remote work has allowed many to work internationally, in countries where the virus isn’t rapidly spreading. 

Americans jailed during the pandemic for breaking quarantine rules has not been uncommon. Hawaii, back in May, arrested ”rogue tourists” who ignored local virus rules.
