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.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
