BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — A warning to quarantine for clients of a nail salon in Washington County.

The alert is for clients of the Nailspot in Bartlesville after an employee tested positive for COVID-19. Every client is already aware of the situation. The salon runs by appointment only, so they knew exactly who to notify.

The Washington County Health Department recommends clients who visited the salon between May 5 and 7 to quarantine for 14 days. Between those days the infected staff member was in the salon.

May 5 was the Nailspot’s reopening day. The owners said they delayed reopening to make sure they had proper sanitation and PPE. They shut down again on May 7 after a staff member notified the owners she could have the virus. Every employee has now been tested.

Nailspot got the first positive result on May 12. Owners shared the news on Facebook and nearly all of the comments are of support and gratitude for their honesty.

The Nailspot is scheduled to open again May 26, that will be pushed back if they have other positive test results.

Those who visited the salon and have any symptoms are asked to contact the health department at 918-335-3005.
