A man and woman in Jersey have been charged after allegedly leaving their home to go shopping when they should have been isolating.
Jersey Police say the couple had returned to the island from Luxembourg, which is a red designated country on Jersey's safe travel list.
All arrivals from Luxembourg have to quarantine for two weeks.
However the police say during spot checks by the enforcement team on 7 August - the man, aged 29, and the 31-year-old woman, had left their home to go shopping.
They were charged on 27 August and are set to appear in Jersey's Magistrate's Court on 7 September.
The government website states that anyone who doesn't isolate when told could be fined up to £1,000.
