ELLSWORTH – Family of some residents at Seaport Village in Ellsworth are concerned after seeing outside contractors doing work at the facility amid calls for social isolation.
We spoke with Jammie Tracey, who has a relative at Seaport Village, and she said at first a staff member at Seaport Village denied having outside construction workers on site.
“When I called I was told that they had no unnecessary staff there. But they did not admit it to me because I am not an employee or anything but I was told there were no unnecessary staff in the building,” Tracey said.
Seaport Village staff members did then admit to having the contractors on site.
According to Tracey, a staff member at Seaport Village said they were taking the temperature of the contractors and asked them questions before doing work at the facility.
Michael Harris, along with Tracey, are concerned for those living and working there who are at most risk for coronavirus.
“In times like these where we rely on people that are in positions of authority to do the best job they can taking care of people who can’t take care of themselves,” Harris said.
“If you’re going to be in this position you need to take seriously all the recommendations that are being put out there,” he said.
Tracey said family members aren’t allowed to visit their relatives at Seaport Village right now.
We reached out to officials at Seaport Village and they did not get back to us with a statement.
