SALINAS, Calif. (KION)
A construction crew from Fresno say they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms after staying at a Salinas motel where they were told people infected with the virus were isolating.
Men with the construction crew say they were never informed about sick guest occupying some rooms at the Quality Inn motel on Kern Street before staying there.
These workers said Tuesday, a security guard notified them the motel was housing people who need help isolating.
“No one told us when we checked in or anything, we didn’t see no signs anywhere or haven’t seen any sanitizing stations or anything that tells me be extra careful," says Cesar, one of the construction workers.
Cesar says one of his coworkers went home to Fresno after staying at the motel and fears he may have potentially infected his wife and family who tested positive for COVID-19.
At the moment the County of Monterey says they cannot confirm or deny if the motel in Salinas is being used to house people who need a room to quarantine.
KION has reached out to ask if they had any knowledge of the situation.
The Quality Inn motel office was also contacted, in which they said they did not have COVID positive guests because they do not have the deep cleaning services to do that.
Just around 6 p.m. Tuesday, a Disaster Kleenup Specialists vehicle was on site conducting some deep cleaning.
