Officials issue blood-infection warning to London, Ont., nail salon customers

Public health officials are warning customers of a nail salon in London, Ont., that they may have been exposed to blood-borne infections after a client tested positive for hepatitis B. The Middlesex-London Health Unit issued an alert Wednesday warning clients of Cali Nails in the White Oaks Mall that they contact their doctors about getting tested for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Mary Lou Albanese, the manager of the health unit's infectious disease control team, says a customer who contracted hepatitis B went to the salon for a manicure and pedicure. She says her agency is issuing the advisory for anyone who visited the salon between May 4, 2017, and Jan. 5, 2018.
