Kingdom Nails & Spa is the second city nail salon to be linked to COVID-19.
Binh’s Nails and Spa on Gardiners Road was closed at the end of last week after at least 16 positive cases of COVID-19 were found at the facility, including six employees and three customers and family and others people who have come into contact with these customers.
More than 500 people who visited Binh between June 12 and 24 must be tested and isolated for 14 days.
Binh’s provided a written statement to the Whig-Standard on Saturday.
“We sincerely apologize to anyone affected by this terrible situation,” the statement said. “We understand that our words will never fix this situation, but we hope you can understand that we are all learning in this new normal of a world and we have done our best to operate safely. With our new knowledge of what we could have done better, we hope that we may be able to function again someday and hope to obtain forgiveness from everyone affected. ”
In the statement, Binh admitted that he “could (certainly) have done better” with the pre-screening guests at the entrance. The statement said the company will be “stricter with all protocols” in the future.
“Please understand that we are only human beings like you. We promise to do better. ”
