The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of potential exposures from COVID-19 positive individuals.
While symptomatic, our case worked as a hair stylist at the Great Clips at 1864 S. Glenstone Ave. on the following dates:
The individual and their clients were wearing face coverings. The 84 clients potentially directly exposed will be notified by the Health Department and be offered testing, as will seven coworkers.
It is the hope of the department that because face coverings were worn throughout this exposure timeline, no additional cases will result.
Anyone deemed not to be a close contact during this timeframe but were in this location during those dates and times is believed to be at very low risk.
These individuals are advised to watch for symptoms, but there is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention.
If you are sick, you can use virtual care options to seek medical treatment without exposing others to illness. Links are available at health.springfieldmo.gov/coronavirus

Also, another unrelated case visited the following location while infectious, but while wearing a mask:
COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another.
Anyone who was at these locations on these dates is at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop.
