Last week, Elizabeth Chambers opened up about her family’s self-isolation experience in the Cayman Islands by sharing an Instagram post of herself stopping by a local grocery store for the second time during the global pandemic.

The wife of actor Armie Hammer wrote, “Left home yesterday for the first time in almost a month for our second grocery run and the experience was drastically different than before. We’re currently quarantined in Grand Cayman, which wasn’t planned when we left LA 5 weeks ago for nyc for previews of @minutesbway.”

The owner of Bird Bakery confessed that she “felt the need to explain” her family’s situation during this “very sensitive time” as other celebrities have encountered backlash over their responses to the coronavirus which has killed more than 165,000+ people around the world.

Left home yesterday for the first time in almost a month for our second grocery run and the experience was drastically different than the first run three and a half weeks ago. We’re currently quarantined in Grand Cayman, which wasn’t planned when we left LA 5 weeks ago for nyc for previews of @minutesbway. Due to travel restrictions, school closures and the fact that we were planning to be here with our extended family two weeks later for spring break, we made this decision for the health and safety of our family. But none of that is the point…I just know this is a very sensitive time and emotions are heightened, so felt the need to explain. The point is…the government here seems to be handling this entire situation extremely well. There are strict curfews, lockdowns and visitation to essential businesses are only allowed on certain days based on the first letter of your last name. And it seems to be working. There are no lines or crowding and when I asked the cashier if they have been busy/overwhelmed on the weekends, she said that it’s never very busy and no lines because of the mandates. I’ve received messages from a few people saying that local grocery stores on the east coast have implemented one-way aisles and @birdbakery we’re using tape on the floor as a guideline for social distancing if guests must enter. How are your local businesses and grocery stores finding the balance between social distancing and customer demand? Please share and stay safe (and home when possible)! ❤️

Hammer and his parents moved to the Cayman Islands when the actor was seven years old, then returned to Los Angeles five years later.

Chambers stated, “Due to travel restrictions, school closures and the fact that we were planning to be here with our extended family two weeks later for spring break, we made this decision for the health and safety of our family. The point is … the government here seems to be handling this entire situation extremely well.”

Provisions, but make it distant.

The Food Network personality advised her followers to stay safe during the global crisis, and complimented the local government’s disciplined guidance toward health precautions. “There are strict curfews, lockdowns and visitation to essential businesses are only allowed on certain days based on the first letter of your last name. And it seems to be working. There are no lines or crowding and when I asked the cashier if they have been busy/overwhelmed on the weekends, she said that it’s never very busy and no lines because of the mandates. I’ve received messages from a few people saying that local grocery stores on the east coast have implemented one-way aisles and @birdbakery we’re using tape on the floor as a guideline for social distancing if guests must enter.”

Five weeks prior to the latest update, Chambers shared photos of herself with her children at a local beach and wrote, “Actual footage of me anticipating the delivery of profiteroles.”
