Hairstylist with COVID-19 served 84 clients while symptomatic, Missouri officials say

Last edited Sat May 23, 2020, 01:49 AM - Edit history (2)

A Great Clips hairstylist exposed dozens of clients to coronavirus while showing symptoms, Missouri health officials say.

The stylist at a salon franchise in Springfield served 84 clients and exposed seven coworkers, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department said Friday. The hairstylist also visited a Dairy Queen, Walmart and fitness center, officials said.

The announcement comes as barbers and salon operators and their customers across the U.S. fight to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Missouri state leaders allowed these businesses to reopenMay 4.

I honestly do not know how this is anything but a criminal act such as assault, manslaughter, criminal negligence, or something else. Is she a right winger who wanted to go back to work? Was she forced or not given a choice to return to work for economic reasons? Regardless, I blame her for going to work while sick. I blame her boss or the franchise owner or the corporate execs for letting/making her work. I blame the Republican governor of Missouri for requiring people to go back to work. I blame the federal government for not making it easier for infected people to stay home and receive compensation while infected and contagious. This country is so fucked up now.

4. Criminal assault? No. This is a virus, not a deadly weapon

and people go to work sick all the time when there is no sick leave and shitty wages prevent them from saving enough to tide them over when they get sick. This is an indictment of the shitty US system that does nothing to protect the people from the powerful, not an indictment of a hairdresser.

Likely she though she wasn't sick enough to have the illness. When I had presumptive, I knew that if I'd been in my 20s, I might have blown it off if I had no sick leave and only shitty wages.

This is pointing up the serious flaws that Cheap Labor Conservatism has perpetuated in order to maximize the gravy train the billionaires are enjoying.

I doubt she had a choice. She didn't feel well, but she'd gone to work not feeling well before.

I just hope she and her clients live through it and that they're deeply angry about this, and at the appropriate people and none of those people is one particular hairdresser.

5. The fact that she went to a fitness center implies she didn't care or think it's a big deal.

I know when I'm actually feeling sick the last thing I think of is I need to go to the gym.

I get what you're saying about the high leverage we place on work. But sometimes people are just assholes.

7. I Would Like To Know More Before I Make Judgement

Why was she working sick. Has she said anything?

Lots of people work sick for usually the same reason.

Being broke.

9. My experience at the hairdresser Wed. - 3 days ago.

Ohio began permitting beauty salons to re-open on Monday, I believe.
I know my hairdresser quite well, and had spoken with her approximately weekly since early March.
We are both mature women, and the owner of the salon is not far behind. - All past 50, for sure.
I knew that my hairdresser was staying fairly close to her home during this period; she went out for a walk or a bike ride most days, but stayed home other than that.
I let her know, by phone, that I wanted to come in when the shop was nearly empty.
The salon's owner posted photos on her Facebook page showing the installation of plexiglass separators between the individual stations.
I wore my mask, as did the hairdresser and owner, who were basically the only others in the salon at the time. I had a thick plastic cape over my clothes. Another patron came in for about 20 minutes while I was there, and was seated several stations removed from me.
The hairdresser told me that waxing was not permitted as yet, which surprised me, in that tattoo parlors are now allowed to be open.
Magazines or other reading material had been removed.
The services I had were hair coloring, shampoo, light cut, and blow dry.
I was in the salon about 1 and 3/4 hrs.
I felt the whole process went well, and would say that , under these circumstances, one should not fear having hair done.

12. Being indoors for 1 and 3/4 hours with my hairdresser and her

co workers is not a risk I would take.

I like my hairdresser and think she'd tell me the truth about her isolation behaviors, but I could not be certain about her or the others in the shop.

The stakes are too high to get rid of my roots. I'll stick with the Loreal.

16. I understand. One has to choose very selectively.

For that reason I am isolated from my adult children, especially one who is in and out of convenience stores as part of his job and who also has a housemate who goes Lord knows where, as the housemate is not answerable to any of us.

I also have a daughter in a long-term care facility which has been in lockdown since early March. I miss her and she misses her freedom of movement, as she has not had a breath of fresh air in all that time.

10. The US is already near or at the top of the fatality list aren't they?

My gawd.

I think Trump is between a rock and and a hard place. Which is great.
He wants to open everything, prove its not so bad. That or feed the herd in an attempt to get everyone infected and those that will die will die off quicker, and everyone that survives and is immune can start it up sooner than the "flattening the curve" method.

All to have the economy cracking by November. Or at least on the way up.

But if he and his sycophant governors push to open too soon, all it means is that they will end up being forced to re-shut down, with even stricter restrictions. That or even the cult members will be afraid to shop or go to work with the body count rising. And the Red States economies will fail anyways. And people vote with the economy in mind first. Meanwhile, the Blue States will probably be doing okay by then.

13. An Obvious Fact The "Save The Economy" Folks Miss

Dead people are bad consumers.
I don't know what's so hard to understand about mass death having a negative economic impact.
But, they're missing it!

15. Opening everything while ignoring masks shows how much he sucks

He literally wants no reminders of his failure.
