A Quebec dentist and his partner have been booted out of the Cayman Islands after breaking the territory’s quarantine rules.
Dr. Pascal Terjanian, a controversial dentist who practises in Montreal and Terrebonne, and Cristina Gurinian pleaded guilty to the charge and were each fined $1,500.
The couple arrived in the Cayman Islands on Nov. 13 and breached quarantine rules several times.
Terjanian, 52, and Gurinian, 34, both pleaded guilty during a court appearance via a video link on Monday.
Upon arrival at the airport, they were fitted with electronic tracker wristbands and escorted to an apartment complex where they were supposed to isolate for 14 days because of the pandemic.
Police were called to the complex after staff notified them that the couple had left the apartment.
Gurinian failed to wear her mask upon arrival at the complex and on several other occasions when she walked from her apartment to put garbage in the dumpster, a Cayman news outlet reported.
