    Tourist breaks quarantine, tests positive

    Well, it happened. A tourist decided not to honor the quarantine after testing at the airport and is positive. Apparently, this person and partner roamed around the resort, booked a tour, went out to dinner and mingled. Now approximately 50 people have to be contact traced. Just sickening.

    The article I saw said they can be fined the US equivalent of $5700.

    I hope idiots like this person do not ruin it for the rest of the people traveling to Aruba.

    I suppose it was bound to happen. It’s infuriating that people can be so thoughtless and ignorant. Unfortunately, it’s not surprising. I look around my own neighborhood and see that people are not following guidelines

    I had read about it in one of the aruba papers and then saw follow up on FB.

    As Peg said it is "infuriating". I hate it that people are so selfish.

    These are the folks that ruin it for all of us.

    The articles that I have seen aren't releasing that information. Yes, it is very sad that their stupid decisions have now put so many people in danger.

    To me I just can't figure out why they won't release information to where they were staying. But yet they want to trace. So why not state the place where they stayed and then we could all help with the tracing. I just can't figure that one out. Maybe thats just me!!!!

    is it wrong of me to hope that the "cheating unscrupulous covid positive person" gets sent to the lovely ocean view prison?
    in isolation of course!
