A Kentucky woman was taken into custody after she refused to self-quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus.
Kendra Burnett was arrested after visiting a Louisville Kroger on Monday, despite being asked to stay home.
A Louisville city employee stated that officials were “issuing an advisory to the Kroger store [to] alert its employees to the date and time that an infected individual was in the store and to the symptoms of COVID-19.”
According to Fox News, the police were led to Burnett by her own mother, who told authorities where she would be.
Burnett made contact with about five people in the store, with around 200 people in the building at the time.
The woman was not cooperative with police, allegedly damaging a tail light and interior handle on a patrol vehicle.
Burnett was charged with five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, as well as one count of contempt of court and second-degree criminal mischief, according to court records.
