Kentucky woman who broke quarantine order arrested
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Police records say a Kentucky woman ordered to self-quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus was arrested as she left a Louisville grocery store.
The Courier Journal reports 37-year-old Kendra A. Burnett was arrested Monday after her mother told a police officer she was violating a court order to self-quarantine.
An arrest citation says the officer contacted the county attorney, who said Burnett had refused to self-quarantine about three times.
She’s facing charges including five counts of wanton endangerment.
A Kroger manager told police that it appeared Burnett had contact with five people inside the store.
Burnett did not have an attorney listed in online court records.
