Skylar Mack Broke Cayman Quarantine
According to the Cayman News Service, Mack, who is the daughter of pro jet ski racer Dennis Mack, breached a 14-day COVID-19 quarantine on November 29, only two days after arriving on the island. She spent seven hours with members of the public after slipping off a wristband that tracked her location, the newspaper reports.
She told authorities the iMsafe wristband was too tight, so they loosened it at the hotel where she was quarantining, and was then able to slip it off, according to the Cayman News Service. Mack then attended a jet ski event in the South Sound, causing four families to go into isolation. There is currently no local spread of coronavirus in the Cayman.
A judge initially sentenced Mack and her boyfriend, a native of the Cayman Islands, to 40 hours of community service and a fine of $2,600 each, according to prosecutors. Mack paid the fine, but the government appealed and she was re-sentenced on December 17, the newspaper reports..
Mack and Ramgeet could not be reached for comment by Heavy. The Cayman News Service reported after the December 15 hearing, “Visibly distraught by the decision, the couple were remanded immediately. Though it is unlikely that they will serve the full four months, they will almost certainly be spending the holidays in HMP Fairbanks and HMP Northward respectively.”
Her boyfriend’s name is Vanjae Ramgeet. He is 24 years old.
Skylar Mack lives in Loganville, Georgia, and graduated from high school there in 2019, according to her Facebook profile. She is in her second year at Mercer University, where she is studying biology.
