“This is one example of how COVID-19 could sneak into our community,” Moore said.

Among the people infected is an employee of the Amherstview Golf Club, who came into contact with someone who is believed to have contracted the virus at the salon, according to a message posted by the golf club.

The golf club is remaining open but the patio is closed until staff and patrons are tested.

“We are all taking this matter very seriously and working in conjunction with the KFLA Health Unit to ensure everyone’s safety,” general manager Joe Rishaur wrote on the club’s social media page Thursday evening.

“Although we have been following all protocols put in place to provide a safe environment for our staff and patrons, Carolyn and l feel it is our responsibility to take even more aggressive measures to ensure this does not happen again.”

A close contact of one of the nail salon employees who tested positive, a worker at the Amherst Island Ferry dock construction site, also tested positive. The construction site has now been halted until further notice.
