PA woman’s lawsuit says she got herpes from mall makeup counter: ‘It destroyed my life’

WILLOW GROVE, Pennsylvania — The pandemic has changed the way cosmetic counters operate. But as malls and establishments reopen, a Pennsylvania woman hopes the changes remain permanent.

Her plea comes after she contracted ocular herpes while getting her makeup professionally done for an event.

Tammeka Hill said she visited the MAC cosmetic counter in the Willow Grove Mall in June 2019.

“She did a wonderful job with my makeup,” Hill recalled.

But several days later she woke up in excruciating pain.

“I couldn’t see, I had to be taken to the emergency room.”

Doctors said she had ocular herpes. Like the virus people get on their mouths, Hill had it in her eye.

“I literally cried myself to sleep that night because I just was like, ‘This is unbelievable,'” Hill said.

Tucker’s efforts to annex area near Northlake Mall, remove term limits stall out

Tucker Mayor Frank Auman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he was surprised neither piece of legislation gained traction. He added that the DeKalb delegations know what the city wants and encourages them to revisit both ideas next legislative session.

Annexation

Since Tucker was chartered in 2015, the city has annexed properties, but it’s always done so based on public participation — not legislative approval.

In February, the city passed a resolution to ask the Legislature to annex 22 parcels to help alleviate service issues, such as land planning and roadway maintenance.

“It’s a real problem to get service delivery in there, which is really what cities are for, right,” Auman said.

Tucker is asking state leaders to allow the city to annex the area of unincorporated DeKalb that is colored orange on this map. The area is nearly surrounded by Tucker's current city limits.
