Clark County Public Health issued a statement over the weekend that people who visited a Camas salon recently may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should quarantine at home:
Anyone who visited Stellar Hair Design in Camas between 10 am and 7 pm Jan. 19-23 or Jan. 26 may be at risk of contracting COVID-19. Skamania County Community Health and Clark County Public Health have been unable to identify and notify individuals who may have been exposed. It’s unclear how many people may have been exposed.
Individuals who visited the salon during those times should quarantine for 14 days from their most recent visit to the salon during that timeframe.
Health officials recommend anyone exposed to COVID-19 quarantine at home for 14 days and monitor themselves for symptoms. People who do not live or work in a high-priority setting – such as long-term care facilities, health care facilities, food processing facilities or jails – may shorten their quarantine in the following circumstances:
• If a person who is in quarantine has no symptoms, quarantine can end after Day 10.
• If a person who is in quarantine receives a negative COVID-19 test and has no symptoms, quarantine can end after Day 7. The person must be tested on or after Day 5, and quarantine cannot be discontinued earlier than Day 8. Even if a negative test is received before Day 8, the quarantine period should still be a full seven days.
Anyone who has been in quarantine should continue to monitor their symptoms through Day 14. If they develop symptoms, they should isolate themselves immediately to avoid infecting others and seek testing for COVID-19.
