A female bar worker will likely face charges for breaching COVID-19 protocols after going to work after testing positive for coronavirus.

“I want to highlight specifically a case where a young lady was, should have been in isolation, she was positive, but yet she left her home and went to work in a bar”, Health Minister Molwyn Joseph told reporters at a press conference on Friday.

Over 100 patrons reportedly visited the bar during the period and police were said to be investigating the matter.

“We want to see action taken against individuals who act in such irresponsible ways as to jeopardize the health of the wider society. There is no excuse for it, there is no need to dance around the issue, people who are irresponsible should pay.”, the Minister said.
