novel-coronavirus

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of potential exposures from a COVID-19 positive individual.

A second hair stylist from the Great Clips at 1864 S. Glenstone Ave. has tested positive for COVID-19.

At this time, this is the only other positive result we have had from those tested as a result of the previous exposure.

This stylist worked the following days while experiencing very mild symptoms but potentially infectious:

  • Saturday, May 16 (9 a.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Sunday, May 17 (10 a.m. - 4 p.m.)
  • Monday, May 18 (9 a.m. – 6 p.m.)
  • Tuesday, May 19 (9 a.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, May 20 (9 a.m. - 12 p.m.)

The individual and their clients were wearing face coverings. The 56 clients potentially directly exposed will be notified by the Health Department and be offered testing.

A full timeline of all known potential community exposures is available here.

The potential exposures from these two confirmed cases combined is:

  • Tuesday, May 12 (8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, May 13 (8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.)
  • Thursday, May 14 (12 p.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Friday, May 15 (1 p.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Saturday, May 16 (8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Sunday, May 17 (10 a.m. - 4 p.m.)
  • Monday, May 18 (9 a.m. – 6 p.m.)
  • Tuesday, May 19 (9 a.m. - 6 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, May 20 (9 a.m. - 6 p.m.)

Anyone deemed not to be a close contact during this timeframe (in other words, anyone not contacted by the Health Department and notified of exposure) 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:

  • cough,
  • fever,
  • shortness of breath,
  • chills,
  • muscle pain,
  • sore throat
  • and new loss of taste or smell

If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention.
