Partygoer Who Attended Ozarks Memorial Day Gathering in Missouri Tests Positive for Coronavirus
Health officials in Missouri say one of the partiers in the Lake of the Ozarks area on Memorial Day Weekend has tested positive for coronavirus.
The Camden County Health Department in Missouri reported the person visited the backwater jacks bar and grill in Osage Beach that Saturday.
That’s where viral video showed partiers crowded together in a pool.
On May 23, the partygoer was to Backwater Jack’s Bar & Grill between approximately 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. local time, and again between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. The subject also visited Shady Gators and Lazy Gators Pool from 5:40 p.m. through 9 p.m.
The following day, the unidentified patient was seen at Buffalo Wild Wings from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. before visiting Shady Gators from approximately 2:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. The person then took a taxi from Shady Gators to a private residence around 7 p.m., officials reported.
“The public who may have been in these places is asked to please monitor for symptoms. … If you develop symptoms, please contact your physician and isolate until test results are known,” officials said.
As of Saturday, Missouri has recorded 12,795 confirmed case and at least 738 deaths, according to the state’s health department.
Worldwide positive cases, according to the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine’s Coronavirus Resource Center, exceeded 6 million by Saturday evening.
No new coronavirus cases were reported among Camden County residents this week, officials said.
