Two hairstylists exposed 140 clients to COVID-19

The world may be shut down, but people still have bills to pay, and feel that WORK is the only way to manifest the money.

SPRINGFIELD, Missouri—  Two hairstylists who tested positive for COVID-19 may have exposed 140 customers to the virus, WSBTV reports.

The two unarmed stylists worked at the same Great Clips salon location in Springfield, Missouri.

Despite experiencing symptoms of the virus for eight days, one of the stylists continued to go to work, exposing 84 clients and seven colleagues. On Friday she tested positive for COVID, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department announced.

A second COVID-positive stylist at the salon “potentially directly exposed” 56 more clients after working for five days while “experiencing very mild symptoms,” health department officials said.

The business was legally open in accordance with Missouri’s reopening guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The stylists and their clients were wearing face coverings, a policy that was enforced by the Great Clips staff.

A team of contact tracers are working to contact anyone else the stylists might have come in close contact with. According to the county health department, the stylist who first tested positive for the virus also visited a local Dairy Queen, a Walmart and a gym.

The salon closed temporarily for a deep cleaning.

Despite the government giving everyone a one time $1200 stimulus check, and unemployment being offered to entrepreneurs people are still choosing to go to work, due to bills.
