So far, no other positive cases related to the stylist have been confirmed, but the county is nevertheless facing “a glut of cases,” said Goddard.
Those exhibited at the show would be offered tests.
“The good news is that clients and hairdressers were masked” at the time of the exhibit, he said.
Goddard said at a press conference on Friday that more cases like this would quickly affect Springfield’s ability to care for patients.
“The hairdresser worked while he was sick,” he said. “I’ll be honest with you -We can’t get much more.” “
As part of the reopening of the Missouri pandemic, hair salons are allowed to operate.
He warned residents who recently visited the same locations as the stylist, including a Dairy Queen, Walmart and CVS pharmacy, to look for symptoms of COVID-19 and to isolate themselves if they develop.
The stylist worked from May 12 to Wednesday and was positive, health officials said.
