The US college student jailed in the Cayman Islands for ditching COVID-19 quarantine to watch her boyfriend jet-ski is now back on American soil.

Skylar Mack, 18, landed in Georgia on Friday after serving 32 days of her two month sentence, according to ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“Very excited. Happy to be home,” Mack said.

A pre-med student at Mercer University in Atlanta, Mack had arrived in the Caymans on Nov. 27 to visit her boyfriend, competitive jet-skiier Vanjae Ramgeet.

She was supposed to quarantine for 14 days, wearing the required visitor wristband monitor.

But after just two days of isolation and a negative coronavirus test, Mack slipped off the device and went out to watch Ramgeet compete.

Ramgeet, 24, was charged with abetting Mack’s rogue behavior for allegedly helping her break isolation.

The lovebirds landed a four-month jail term Dec. 15 but appealed the decision — and saw their sentences reduced to two months each.

The teen’s family had pleaded for help to get her sprung, with Mack’s grandmother even appealing to President Trump in a letter.

“It’s the biggest relief,” Jeanne Mack told GMA about having her granddaughter home. “I finally slept through the night.”
