DENPASAR, Indonesia — A tourist from the U.S. was among four travelers ordered to leave Indonesia’s resort island of Bali Monday after violating health protocols as the country endures a devastating wave of COVID-19 illnesses and deaths.

The U.S. tourist and two others from Ireland and Russia were accused of defying mask mandates in public after being found unmasked last Thursday in a raid to enforce health protocols and prevent more infections in the Kuta tourist area, according to Jamaruli Manihuruk, who heads the Bali regional office for the Justice and Human Rights Ministry.

The three travelers were placed in a detention room at the immigration office while waiting for their flights to their countries Monday.
