Two hairstylists who tested positive for coronavirus at Great Clips in Springfield, Missouri have potentially exposed at least 140 people to COVID-19, according to NBC.
The Springfield-Green County Health Department noted the stylists and their clients were reportedly wearing face masks, and that everyone who may have been exposed to the virus would be traced and tested. Health Department director Clay Goddard said, “I’m going to be honest with you. We can’t have many more of these. We can’t make this a regular habit or our capability as a community will be strained, and we will have to re-evaluate what things look like going forward.”
News of the coronavirus cases comes after officials in Springfield, Missouri announced their plan to ease up on social distancing requirements.
