Fine imposed for breaches of self-isolation law

23 October 2020

coronavirus update

A 22-year old woman has been fined for failing to self-isolate after being instructed to by the contact-tracing team.

Carys Ann Ingram was fined £6,600, with the alternative of 24 weeks imprisonment, for breaching Covid Regulations after she failed to self-isolate. Ingram had been contacted by the Contact Tracing team when she was identified as a direct contact of a COVID positive person.

She was then discovered to have breached the regulations four times – when out shopping, out for a meal at a restaurant, visiting a friend’s house, and not being at home when the enforcement team visited her.

Ingram was fined £600 for the first breach and £6000 for the subsequent three.

The Strategic Lead for Contact Tracing, Monitoring and Enforcement, Caroline Maffia, said: “It is regrettable that someone should endanger the health of other Islanders after being informed of the need to self-isolate.

“This fine demonstrates that we will pursue prosecution for those found flouting the law. Anyone identified as a direct contact of a COVID positive person must understand the importance of following public health advice and abiding by the law.”
