(CMR) Travel Cayman reports that due to a system software error, a traveler was permitted to quarantine at a residence that did not meet the approved criteria leading to 11 persons being tested for covid-19 after an apparent breach. In a brief statement earlier this afternoon, they shared the circumstances under which the incident occurred.
An entire tenement house on Oak Mill Street in Windsor Park was impacted because of this. The family spoke exclusively to CMR indicating they were confused when their 62-year-old father showed up at the resident in a white van. They explained that they had been told that the resident was not approved for home isolation after a home inspection was carried out.
However, upon his arrival, they sent him upstairs to quarantine on the higher level by himself.
The traveler's request to quarantine at a private residence was denied and the traveler was instead approved for a government-sponsored facility. However, due to an error in the system, the traveler was transported to the unapproved quarantine address originally requested.
Travel Cayman has investigated the matter and software engineers are rectifying the issue. Additional verification protocols have been put in place and manual checks are being carried out in tandem.
All residents at the dwelling have been tested and public health has confirmed that there is no cause for concern or risk of community transmission.
The traveler is due to complete their quarantine period today.
CMR understands that all persons have tested negative and the elderly man will be retested on Friday. They have all been forced to quarantine until the all-clear is given.
