A 26-year-old female employee at a United States military vacation lodge in Germany, who went on a bar crawl while she was infected with coronavirus, is facing a prison sentence of up to ten years in the country. The woman has now been identified as Yasmin Adli from Florida, reports state. Adli has been accused of partying for multiple nights in Garmisch-Partenkirchen as she awaited her test results for Covid-19 after a vacation in Greece. Recent reports state that Adli partied with dozens of people despite having a sore throat days after her trip.

A screenshot of text messages Adli allegedly sent to her co-workers who partied with her showed that she thanked them all for coming for her "rona party" and claimed that "I didn't know I had the rona when we went out." She allegedly sent the message after she tested positive for this virus, according to the Daily Mail. 

Adli reportedly infected at least 23 people and exposed over 710 others to the deadly virus while she partied after her trip to Greece in early September. Authorities on Tuesday, September 15, reported that three more people had tested positive who went to the same bars visited by the 26-year-old. Adli, who works at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort owned by the Defense Department, now faces prison time. The lodge, located at an Armed Forces Recreation Centers (AFRC) Resorts, reportedly serves members of the US Armed Forces, their families and other authorized users. 

Reports state that Adli, on September 3, visited the Peaches bar and the Irish Pub in Garmisch on September 4. A source reportedly told the outlet that on the night Adli visited Peaches, a large group of staff was leaving and she kissed several other employees during the event. The 26-year-old reportedly at this point of time was feeling too sick to go back to work. 

Adli, after her return from the trip, had also worked in the hotel, serving guests and staff in the establishment's cafe. She also set up conference rooms until the day she went for a coronavirus test, the outlet reported, adding that among the conferences was one with the United States European Command about preventing the spread of Covid-19 in the US Army.

The particular resort has now been shut down for two weeks and a message has been issued by the hotel to its staff, accusing some of "reckless behavior." Adli has reportedly deleted her social media profiles since the incident. 

The total number of infections in that particular town was raised to 59 as of Tuesday, September 15, including 25 staff members at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort.

Lawyer Arndt Kempgens commented on the case and told the outlet that Adli could face six months to 10 years in prison. "From the point of view of conditional intent, this can even lead to criminal liability for willful and dangerous bodily harm according to Section 224 of the Criminal Code. The sentence ranges from 6 months to 10 years in prison," he said. 

District Office spokesman Wolfgang Rotzsche also released a statement saying: "If the woman has actually consciously accepted this risk, then she should also be legally prosecuted."
