Clients and stylists all wear face masks, and the salon has made other steps such as keeping a social distance from chairs and made promises, said the Springfield-Greene District Health Department this week.

Of the 140 clients and seven potentially exposed work colleagues, 46 took the test which returned negative. All others were quarantined during the coronavirus incubation period. The incubation period of 14 days has now passed without any new infections related to salons, said regional health officials.

During quarantine, those who were not tested were received twice daily calls from health officials asking if they had symptoms related to Covid-19, said Kathryn Wall, a spokesman for the Springfield-Green County Health Department.

District health officials called the results encouraging, and said they were looking in the case for insights on how to stop the spread and assist future research efforts.

“This is interesting news about the value of masks to prevent Covid-19,” said Clay Goddard, district health director. “We are studying more closely the details of this exposure, including what kind of face coverings are worn and what precautions are taken to lead to these encouraging results.”

Research has found that physical distance and the use of masks are the two best ways to prevent corona virus transmission.
This month, a study published in the Lancet medical journal found that people had to stay six feet apart and wear face masks. It is said that the chance of transmission without a face mask is 17.4%, while it drops to 3.1% when the mask is worn. The World Health Organization has urged countries to encourage the general public to wear cloth masks in areas where coronaviruses are spreading.

One hairdresser has worked with 56 clients in the salon while the second saw 84 customers and seven coworkers. They went to the salon for about eight days which ended on May 20.

The salon keeps perfect records that allow contact tracing, Goddard said. But he warned about the risk of abundant resources in such incidents.

“We cannot have more than this,” he said last month. “We cannot make this a habit or our ability as a community will be strained.”

In a statement, Great Klip said it welcomed the results.

“All customers tested for Covid-19 after visiting the Great Klip Klip salon in Springfield, have confirmed negative test results. Together with our 1,100 independent franchisees, we care deeply about the well-being of customers, salon staff, and the communities we serve, and we are grateful love for the health of these people, “that said in a statement to CNN affiliates, KYTV.
More than 112,000 people have died from coronavirus in the United States, where the number of confirmed cases is more than 2 million, according to Johns Hopkins. In Missouri, this virus has killed more than 850 people and infected more than 15,000 others.

Portugal is actively engaged in science, development and processing of observations of this mission and will be able to name one of the cameras that are part of the mission.

The IA has now opened a vote to choose a Portuguese name, which will then be the identification of one of the cameras “during the existence of the mission in space, as a way to honor the astronomers who prepared the science that the PLATO mission will allow to advance,” can be read on the institute’s online page.

Taking into account the criteria that it must be a person who was born somewhere within the current boundaries of the territory, who contributed to astronomy in our country, especially in the study of stars and planetary systems, and who cannot be a living person, the IA proposes the following personalities:

– Teodoro de Almeida (1722-1804)

– José Monteiro da Rocha (1734-1819)

– Campos Rodriguez (1836-1919)

– Francisco de Miranda da Costa Lobo (1864-1945)

Portuguese heritage at the Jewish cemetery in Hamburg

The Jewish-Portuguese cemetery in Hamburg is an outstanding example of the Portuguese presence in the world, where history confirms the well-known ability of the Portuguese to adapt to the most unexpected contexts and situations.
