密蘇里州衛生官員稱,一名患有新冠肺炎的髮型師帶病工作8天,導致多達91名顧客和同事身陷感染病毒的風險。此案突顯企業復工以後,新冠病毒在全美社區傳播的威脅。

有線電視新聞網(CNN)23日報道,密州春田格林縣(Springfield-Greene)衛生局長戈達德表示,Great Clips美髮店的患病髮型師5月12日至20日期間共服務了84名顧客,和他一起工作的還有7名同事。密州已批准全州的理髮店和髮廊等商業恢復營業,該髮型師和顧客當時都佩戴了口罩。

目前尚不清楚這名髮型師何時測出新冠病毒呈陽性,但據信他是在旅行時染病的。縣衛生局在聲明中稱,84名可能直接接觸病毒的客人和其他7名髮型師將收到局方通知,並接受檢測。

戈達德未詳細說明患病髮型師的身份或健康狀況,但稱衛生官員已經聯繫了所有接觸過他的人。該髮型師保存了詳細的服務記錄,使得接觸追蹤成為可能。

衛生官員還公佈了該髮型師去過的所有地點和詳細時間表,包括當地的Dairy Queen、沃爾瑪和CVS藥房。當局敦促去過這些商店的民眾留意可能出現的新冠症狀。Great Clips美髮店現已關閉進行額外的消毒和深度清潔。
