Tufton said, “Mr.Bolt has been tested positive. He has been formally notified I am told by the authorities and in keeping with standard protocols, once there is a positive case irrespective of the individual, it triggers an approach to questioning, interrogation if you will, which would then follow through with contact tracing.”

The minister said he was not aware of public figures entering the country and breaching quarantine.

“We do not discriminate depending on the person. The rules apply to everyone,” Tufton said.
