Before you go to the pool, beach or lake this summer, read this
The Boone County resident visited multiple bars on May 24 and 25, according to the Camden County Health Department. They “developed the disease” on Sunday and were probably contagious before then.

That weekend’s video shows attendees gathered together in a pool at the Backwater Jacks Bar and Grill on Osage Beach on Saturday, according to Scott Pasmore, an anchor for the CNN affiliate KTVK, who shot the footage.

The partyer went to Backwater Jacks between about 13:00. and 17:00 local time and again just before 22:00 local, according to health officials.

The person – who was not identified by officials – also went to Shady Gators, Lazy Gators and Buffalo Wild Wings, officials said.

About 12,700 people in Missouri tested coronavirus positive and about 730 died from Covid-19 infection, according to status data.

No cases were reported in Camden County residents this week, officials said.

Officials release the history of the infected person’s movements

Camden County health officials urged those in the area to monitor symptoms. They released a history of the infected person’s movements, including a list of the bars they visited:

Saturday 23 May

Jack for backwater: between 13:00 and 17:00
Shady Gators and Lazy Gators Pool: 5:40 pm – 9:00 pm

Jack for stagnation: 21: 40-22: 00

Sunday 24 May

Buffalo Wild Wings: 13: 00-14: 00

Shady Gators: around 2.30pm until 6.30pm-7.00pm approx

The “Zero Ducks Given” party drew crowds

As part of the Missouri reopening plan announced earlier this month, State officials said restaurants can offer restaurant services but it must abide by social distancing and other precautionary public health measures. The meeting that weekend violated social exclusion measures aimed at limiting the spread of Covid-19. Backwater Jacks claims that no laws have been violated
The bar posted on Facebook that this was his launch of the summer party called “Zero Ducks Given Pool Party“- the third annual event. They advertised several DJs and bands performing during the event.

“The venue collaborated and followed the advice of government officials and management teams and will follow guidelines on social distancing. Additional precautions and security measures will be taken to provide a safe environment to enjoy the event,” said the bar. .

Medical personnel were hired for the event, according to the bar, and anyone with a temperature above 100.4 was denied access, they said. A hand sanitizer was also provided.

Coronavirus is not likely to spread in water, says the CDC, but spreads to people in the immediate vicinity. Being at least 6 feet away from others is particularly important in swimming pools or beaches because masks are not practical in the water.
For example, several people who attended a high school swimming party in nearby Arkansas contracted Covid-19, Governor Asa Hutchinson said on Saturday.

A large turnout was expected

Lake Ozarks expected a large turnout that weekend after starting the season late due to the pandemic, according to KTVI affiliate of CNN.

“It should be one of the biggest Memorial Day weekends we’ve seen here on the lake for years,” Bill Morgan, manager of Robins Resort in Lake of the Ozarks told KTVI.

Adam Kirk lives in Osage Beach, Missouri and shot a time-lapse drone video showing the amount of boat traffic on Lake Ozarks that Saturday at 4.30pm

“It looks significantly more (traffic) than last year,” he said. “Everyone seems to have the same idea, to come to the lake to enjoy the summer, because you can socialize at the same time.”

CNN’s Nick Watt, Emily Smith and Fenly Foxen contributed to this report.
