Thirty cases of COVID-19 have now been linked to an outbreak at a Kingston nail salon as the region's top doctor says mandatory masks could be in place for the next year. 

Dr. Kieran Moore, Medical Officer of Health for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington, confirmed the added cases on Tuesday linked to Binh's Nail Salon and Spa. 

In an interview with CTV Morning Live, Moore also said the current policy of mandatory masks in commercial spaces is expected to be in place for the next year. 

Last Thursday, the health unit declared a COVID-19 outbreak at the salon on Gardiners Road and the mandatory mask policy was implemented on Friday. 

Over 3,000 people have been tested for COVID-19 in Kingston over the past week.
