“An order was signed by a judge for her to stay quarantined but she refused to comply,” the sheriff’s office said.
The girlfriend was taken to a hospital Sunday, though her admission has not been linked to coronavirus.
“It is vital that citizens who are diagnosed with or are exposed to this virus do the right thing and self quarantine,” Chief Deputy Joel McSwain said in the Facebook post. “If you go out, you could infect others who have to be out working. We must protect our citizens.”
It is not clear if the couple will face any consequences.
