Sallys Beauty Spa and Spa of the Seas has confirmed a fatal virus in the community of Bay Park.
The local spa, which opened in 2016, is notifying customers who have visited its doors on Monday morning that they are currently experiencing symptoms of coronavirus.
Staff at the spa have been disinfecting their premises and the local public has been advised to stay away from the premises.
The spa, located at Bay Park, is run by Sally’s Beauty Spa of San Francisco, which is owned by Sally.
The company, which provides beauty treatments for a variety of clients, said on its website:”We are so grateful to our customers for their continued support and love.
We are in the process of completing an internal review of the safety of our facilities and will continue to take steps to protect the safety and wellbeing of our staff and guests.”
The spa’s website also advises that any clients with any symptoms, particularly fever, cough, or sore throat, should contact their GP or other health professional.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health and the San Francisco County Department of Epidemiology and Public Health Sciences are coordinating the coronaviruses response at Sallys.
Dr Sally Gossman, chief medical officer for Sallys, said:”The risk of spread of coronovirus is high in our community, especially in communities with high numbers of healthcare workers.
I want to thank everyone who is working to protect us, our staff, our customers, and our community.”
The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that the spa will be closed for several days while the health department conducts its investigation.
The California Department of Health and Safety is also investigating the incident and is urging people to stay home until the results of their own tests are known.
Sallys is not the only beauty spa to experience the coronavalanche.
Last week, the Golden Gate Bridge opened for business for the first time in nearly 30 years.
The opening comes just two weeks after the opening of an 18th-century San Francisco church on the bridge’s south side.
