Arrest at supermarket for not wearing a face covering

Informal Resolution | 30 April 2021
Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS)

The complainant was arrested outside of a Supermarket following reports by staff that he refused to wear a face covering in the store. The complainant said the actions of the police were overzealous given he was exempt from wearing a mask.

We established that the arrest was lawful, and that the complainant could not provide any medical exemption to not wear a mask in a store. Once this was explained to the complainant, he said that he had reflected on his own behaviour and agreed that the case could be closed.
