(CNN)A barber working at a barbershop in a New York suburb that had been operating in defiance of the state’s close order has tested positive for Covid-19, according to Ulster Country health officials.

Ulster County health officials are searching for anyone who may have had their haircut at the barbershop over the last three weeks, a statement from the county says. Kingston is located roughly 90 miles north of New York City.

“We are taking extraordinary measures to try and minimize the spread of this dangerous disease and learning that a barbershop has been operating illicitly for weeks with a COVID-19 positive employee is extraordinarily disheartening,” said Dr. Carol Smith, the health commissioner for Ulster County, in a statement.

County health officials are recommending anyone who received a haircut at the shop on Broadway during the past three weeks to get tested for the coronavirus.

“This kind of direct contact has the potential to dramatically spread this virus throughout our community and beyond,” Smith said.
