DuPage Township, IL. (ECWd) -
We were forwarded the below email which was sent to the Township Supervisor and Trustees:
Good Morning Supervisor George & Trustees,
I would like to start by thanking you again for your continued support of xxxxxxxxxx.
I am however very disappointed on a very personal level, I have been to the township multiple times over the last 2 weeks for paperwork regarding our contract. I received a call from Ms. xxxxxxxx on Sunday that she had tested positive for Covid-19. I was not made aware of this by the township but by xxxxxxxxxxx herself.
It is also my understanding that she was at your Turkey Drive last week with the elder citizens and to my knowledge NO ONE has been made aware of this. You have now put me and my family at risk but everyone I come in contact with but more importantly those involved with your Turkey Drive.
I would hope that you would have made a public announcement that "Unfortunately, one of our staff has tested positive and was in attendance at the Turkey Drive, please take proper precautions.."
Also with all my visits to the Township, I have never seen Ms. Linda Young with a mask on. This is very scary knowing that she was just in contact and works closely with xxxxxxxxx. She also works closely with people at the Levy center and the staff who interact with our elderly community. As a leader of the township, she needs to be setting the example for her staff. Can you tell me what kind of actions will be taken to stop this spread? Why is no action being taken against Ms. Linda Young for not following CDC protocol to protect employees and our citizens from lack of leadership and safety?
Also I know the Township caucuses was held last night with over 75 people that employees attended and jeopardized those people and their families as well.
Lack of action is what has led to the further spread of this pandemic. I request that this is made public as a sign of transparency rather than word spread across facebook and or media and causing further damage to an already tumultuous board.
