Great Clips customer who was possibly exposed to COVID-19 speaks out [View all]

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - A client who may have been exposed to COVID-19 at a Great Clips in Springfield is speaking out. One hair stylist worked for several days while sick with the virus. Now another stylist has also tested positive.

"Now I'm someone directly affected by COVID and I never thought that it would be so close to home," said Erik Chase.

Chase visited the Great Clips on S. Glenstone a week ago on Sunday, May 17. The following Saturday, Springfield-Greene County Health Department let him know he'd come in contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.

He's one of the 84 clients who had their hair cut by a stylist who was working while showing symptoms for COVID-19.

"It's a big deal. It definitely gives me great concern," Chase said.

Chase said officials have asked him to stay home until May 31st, 14 days from when he got his hair cut. He must take his temperature twice a day and check in with the health department. He'll be tested for the virus this week.

"All this because someone wasn't responsible," Chase said.

Chase said from the time he went to the Great Clips to the day he was actually notified, he came in contact with 15 to 20 people. At this point, he's expecting the worst.

I wonder if he was wearing a mask when he was exposing those other 15-20 people?
