JetBlue Airways, the employer of American Kalina Collier, who reported that she was being held hostage in Jamaica after testing positive for COVID-19, says the company will be conducting an investigation into her actions.
In a statement today, JetBlue said it has full confidence in Jamaica’s health protocols and urged the public to follow the rules.
“We hold each JetBlue crewmember to the highest standards when it comes to personal integrity and we are conducting an urgent investigation into the actions of our crewmember,” the statement read.
Collier arrived in Jamaica on January 28, and was scheduled to depart February 1.
On Saturday, January 30, Collier did an antigen test that returned a positive result; another test an hour later was negative.
