Police: Florida couple jailed for refusing to quarantine
MIAMI (AP) — Two residents of the Florida Keys have been jailed for failing to quarantine after testing positive for the new coronavirus.
Jail records show that 24-year-old Jose Interian and 26-year-old Yohana Gonzalez are facing charges of violating isolation rules for a quarantine and violating emergency management disaster preparedness rules.
They were arrested Wednesday in Key West. They had been ordered by the health department to quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19, but neighbors said they were ignoring the order.
Investigators say someone videotaped the couple and gave it to Key West police.
