Late on Saturday afternoon, a report was received that a female juvenile who had tested positive for Covid-19 has been living with a family relative who was also required to self isolate. It was further alleged that both the adult and the juvenile have ignored instructions to isolate and that the juvenile has been spending time with other family members who were not in isolation.
Checks revealed that both the juvenile and the adult relative had been told to self-isolate by the Contact Tracing Bureau and that, indeed, they had spent time with other family members.
The adult family relative has been reported for process on suspicion that she had failed to comply with Public Health advice in breach of Civil Contingencies Emergency (Coronavirus Infection Risks Mitigation and Control Measures No.9) Regulations 2020.
The RGP consider the behaviour of these individuals to be utterly irresponsible.
Strict enforcement action will be taken against anyone found to be similarly ignoring the instructions of the Contact Tracing Bureau.
