The Jamaica Gleaner was informed by the authorities that on January 28, Collier arrived in the country and was expected to depart on February 1. However, on 30 January, the newspaper notes that a COVID-19 antigenic test had a positive result.
A second test was negative one hour later. She took her third and positive test on February 2. The spa, Ocean Coral Spring, says Gleaner, informs Collier that she might stay there for 14 days without an extra expense in quarantine instead of spending time in governmental facilities.
