A couple from Florida, USA, appeared before a Magistrate’s Court in the Valley, Anguilla Friday, charged with breaching the Island’s quarantine regulation.

The Royal Anguilla Police Force on its official Facebook page identified the two as Dale Belock 43, and Korinne Belock, 47.

Both were accused of breaching the quarantine regulation by ‘failing to remain within the bubble’.

Anguilla’s vacation Bubble is designed to allow hotels and resorts on the island to “safely offer their short-stay guests access to a variety of approved amenities, services and activities while they stay in place.”

According to a police media release, the Americans pleaded guilty to the charge.

Korinne Belock was reprimanded and discharged while Dale Belock was fined the sum of $5000 to be paid immediately, the police media release said.

The police Facebook post regarding the charges attracted several comments.

Good for Anguilla enforcing the rules set in place for privileged people who think the rules don’t apply to them, selfish!” Wrote Kristi Smith Mercer.

“Absolutely correct! Pair of idiots! They should have been asked to leave the island and not be permitted to return for a period of time!” Said Samantha Wright, while Bakari Wallace posted a one word comment: “Lovely!”

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has placed Anguilla in Category One in regard to COVID-19, asserting that there is a low level of the virus on the Caribbean Island.

The British overseas territory, with a population of slightly over 15,000, has recorded 6 cases of the virus, three of which have recovered and there have been no deaths.
