According to Goddard, health officials believe the stylist contracted the virus while traveling in a different area of Missouri.
"The good news is both the clients and the hairstylists were masked," Goddard said of those exposed at the salon.
The Great Clips location closed for sanitizing and deep cleaning after learning of the sick employee, the co-owners of the salon told KYTV, adding that the stylist is currently "following medical advice and taking appropriate actions."
Goddard noted that it is now "safe to go" back to the location.
