Lake Of The Ozarks Throws Another Massive Party With No Social Distancing
Huge crowds gathered at the Lake of the Ozarks once again this weekend.
Party goers flocked to the EDM concert with photos and videos showing very little social distancing going on and hardly anyone wearing a mask, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Footage shared on social media showed people jumping along to music at the outdoor event seemingly unbothered by the potential risk of covid-19.
And, this isn't the first-time revellers have been seen crammed in and soaking up the sun in at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri this summer.
Back in May footage showed a packed out Memorial Day pool party. Sharing a video of the busy scenes, CBS reporter Scott Pasmore wrote on Twitter: "No Covid concerns at the Lake of the Ozarks."
A resident who had attended the party later tested positive for covid-19 prompting fears it could have been passed on to others at the get together.
The Camden County Health Department said the person had been at the pool party and had then visited several bars in the area.
The post read: "Camden County Health Department has been notified of a Boone County resident who has tested positive for Covid-19 after being in the Lake area on May 23 and 24.

Missouri has had 51,258 confirmed cases of covid-19 and 1,253 deaths.
According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, people in their 20s now make up the largest group of covid-19 cases in the state.
In a post on its Facebook page, the department writes: "While you may be young, healthy and able to recover from COVID-19, a person that you infect may not be so fortunate.
"Also, because this virus is new, it's not yet clear what long-term effects COVID-19 may have on a person, young or old.
"Let's all take preventative measures to keep ourselves and our friends and families safe."
