Caroline Maffia, the Strategic Head of Tracking, Monitoring and Enforcement of Leads, said: “It is unfortunate that someone should endanger the health of other islanders after being informed of the need to self-isolate.

'This fine shows that we will pursue law enforcement for those who break the law. Anyone identified as a direct point of contact for a COVID positive person needs to understand the importance of following public health advice and complying with the law. "
