A Georgia college student neglected to follow novel coronovirus quarantine guidelines after being jailed for four months in Cayman Islands, as local authorities “need to make a statement”, as her grandmother told Globe Live Media on Friday told.

Jean Mac, grandmother of Mercer University student Skylar Mac, reported that 18-year-old Globe Live Media’ Trace Gallagher posted negative results for COVID-19, each of which has been tested six times.

The elder Mac appeared on Globe Live Media’s “Newsroom of America” ​​on Friday morning, when he said the family in Skylar is “very disappointed”, hoping to become a doctor, but Cayman Islands officials “want to hang him for it Huh.”

Mac and her boyfriend, Cayman Islands-based competitive jet skier Vanje Ramjeet, were jailed on Tuesday after their sentences. According to a Cayman News Service report, an island judge issued a four-month term after a previous sentence of 40 hours of community service and a fine of $ 2,600 each.

According to the Cayman Compass, “it was a major violation that can be imagined,” Grand Court Justice Roger Chappell told the court. “It was born out of selfishness and arrogance.”

Officials said it violated quarantine requirements two days after reaching Cayman Islands in late November. According to reports, after being told by government officials to loosen the wristband monitor that he was too tight, he allegedly slipped from the equipment and went for hours at Ramjit’s jet ski competition.


On Friday, Jeanne Mack said her granddaughter was the first person who went to jail for such a crime. She insisted that Skyler socially distance herself while participating in the tournament and told anyone who came near her to stay away.

“They were required to make a statement,” she said. “Her government is accusing her of causing great concern to everyone who was on the island, but it’s because they weren’t telling her that she was negative – she doesn’t have the virus, she never had the virus was not.”

In his own statement, Skyler Mac apologized for what he admitted was “a mistake.”

“I was given the opportunity to enter the islands during these attempts and I misused it,” she said. “I humbly apologize to the community.”
