(CMR) A 19-year old Covid-19 positive Caymanian young man has been caught after going to a gym facility around 8:00 p.m Friday night. It appears he had escaped from a private quarantine facility unconfirmed sources shared.
Sources confirm that he attended the gym but because he was not wearing proper attire he was not permitted to fully enter the facility by gym employees. He was wearing flip-flops and that is not permitted. However, they are taking the extra steps now to deep clean the facility.
Police contacted the facility management later last night to confirm his attendance at the facility. It is unknown where else he may have traveled.
Reports are this is the second time this young man has left quarantine since returning to the island some days ago and Friday evening is the second breach.
CMR has been investigating circumstances around this individual for the entire week after there was a suspicious incident at his Prospect home on Monday. Since then a 24/7 Security Centre guard has been stationed at the residence in a private vehicle. Sources shared that they were there because of a “quarantine person escape”.
Questions to high ranking government officials have led to a brick wall with them saying there was no mystery to be solved here.
Sources further share that he has known the entire time that he is Covid-19 positive as he tested positive upon entry at the airport.
His mother, a senior civil servant posted on her social media page earlier in the week that her 19 and 10-year-old children were returning with a photo of them on Cayman Airways.
This shocking revelation comes on the heels of the deputy governor sharing that they have increased security at the government facilities.
We await government comment on this latest breach. CMR fully intends to name the young man once we receive further details.
