Across the country, states are continuing to reopen and lift restrictions on businesses that were put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
On Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom said the first case of community spread of the coronavirus happened in a nail salon, according to a report from The Los Angeles Times.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “community spread” is the “spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown.”
That is why personal services like nail salons will remain closed for the time being, Newsom said.
“This whole thing started in the state of California, the first community spread, in a nail salon. I just want to remind everybody of that and that I’m very worried about that,” Newsom said, according to The LA Times.
The first case of the coronavirus being passed by community spread happened in Solano County, Caliornia., according to The LA Times.
In a press release in February, the CDC said it was possible the case was the first of community spread of the coronavirus.
However, that person could have also been in contact with an infected person who had returned from travel, the CDC said.
