Today, Dr. Kieran Moore, Medical Officer of Health at KFL&A Public Health confirmed a COVID-19 positive case at Georgia Nail salon at 4499 Bath Road, in Amherstview. As a result, all clients who sought services at this salon from June 12 to June 25 are required to self-isolate and to get tested. Once tested, clients should continue to self-isolate until they receive a negative test result. If after this time, a client develops symptoms they are required to self-isolate again and to get re-tested.
This is the now the fifth nail salon to be either associated with a positive COVID-19 case or fined for not following emergency order protocols following an outbreak in Kingston.
“The well-being of Georgia Nail customers and employees is our top priority along with ensuring adherence to proper sanitization and cleaning,” said Dr. Kieran Moore. “At this time, there is no evidence of propagation; however, with an abundance of caution we have ordered the salon closed until it is safe to re-open.”
The COVID-19 assessment centre at the Leon’s Centre is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; except on July 1, this assessment centre will be closed. A temporary assessment centre will be set-up in the St. Lawrence College parking lot on July 1 and it will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
