A 26-year-old American woman ignored quarantine instructions to go on a bar crawl in Germany

and caused a COVID-19 outbreak at the hotel she works in, officials say

German authorities have accused an American woman of causing a coronavirus outbreak in a Bavarian town after she broke quarantine instructions to go on a bar crawl, local media reported.

On September 8, the unnamed 26-year-old was tested for COVID-19 in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen ski town after she reported symptoms following a vacation to Greece, the Der Tagesspiegel, Der Spiegel, and The Guardian newspapers reported.

The woman, who works at a hotel for members of the US armed forces and their families, was told to self-isolate until her results became available the following morning, The Guardian reported.

However, authorities in the town said the woman ignored the advice and went out to a series of bars that night, the newspapers reported.

She received a positive test the next morning, the outlets said.

1. Some people are very stupid.

It is impossible to understand the level of immaturity and irresponsibility.

2. And you wonder why we can't travel to Europe!

There have always been "ugly Americans", but this is absurd!
