Newsom Says California's Coronavirus Cases All Traced Back To Nail Salon

Researchers in California have tracked down the source of the state's 61,901 cases of COVID-19 -- and found they all originated from one nail salon...

That's according to Governor Gavin Newsom, who made the revelation Thursday when a reporter asked why nail salons aren't allowed to see customers again until 'Phase Three' of the state's reopening plan.

"This whole thing started in the state of California, the first community spread, in a nail salon," he said, adding the spread occurred in spite of the fact that the salon's workers wore gloves. "I'm very worried about that."

However, Newsom did not reveal any other details about the nail salons and their connection to the coronavirus outbreak in the state.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the first community spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. occurred in Solano County on February 27th.
