• Engaging in “unofficial COVID contact tracing” outside of the Health Department. • Tapping into COVID-related resources from the state without following chain of command and consulting Carroll or the Board of Health first. • Requesting COVID-19 “patient-level” information from various members of the department.
• Disseminating incorrect COVID-related information. In the email, Carroll briefly summarized six key areas of concern, saying the mayor’s office was:
• “Actively assisting individuals to secure COVID-19 vaccine appointments outside the Health Department’s involvement and inconsistent with the Department’s commitment to health equity.” Carroll explained in an April 2 email to the Board of Health that there have been attempts to address these concerns with the Mayor’s Office, but with no luck.
Staff writer Taylor Ann Bradford can be reached at 978-675-2705 or email@example.com. Source Which members of the mayor’s office these actions could be attributed to was not explained in the email.
“These actions, however well meaning, can adversely (affect) public health and should not continue,” Carroll wrote. • “Contradicting the clinical advice” of the Health Department tracing team.
