Missouri party people at the lake are enduring national rebuke over scenes from a pool party broadcast across the nation and the world today.
Trending on Twitter and every other social media outlet, overall there's widespread antipathy against this weekend celebration on the same day the New York Times offered a massive list of coronavirus pandemic victims.
A public health reference:
Missouri DHSS: "In accordance with the guidelines from the President and CDC, every person and business in the State of Missouri shall abide by social distancing requirements, including maintaining six feet (6’) of space between individuals ... Individuals performing job duties that require contact with other people closer than six feet (6’) should take enhanced precautionary measures to mitigate the risks of contracting or spreading COVID-19." — health.mo.gov

Only a small fringe element of malcontents and foreign agents deny that coronavirus is real. Meanwhile, there is legitimate debate over the lethality of the virus, effective treatments, a vaccine and the best way to SAFELY move forward.
However, NOBODY is willing to co-sign sloppy drunken pool parties as the best way to restart the American economy . . . Whilst that argument would be entertaining, it's certainly not serious or something that anybody with any real power is suggesting.
And so we share these links among several perspectives on the topic . . .

Lake of the Ozarks is a tourist hot spot, but Memorial Day weekend revelers, appearing to flaunt social distancing rules, could make it into a coronavirus hotspot as well. Social distancing seemed to be a thing of the past as partyers flocked to the popular Missouri park to kick off summer with a potential coronavirus cocktail as they packed into pools, bars and other areas.

John Olivarri, mayor of Osage Beach, a town of about 4,000 people nestled on the eastern edge of Lake of the Ozarks, said he did not think it could be prevented or stopped. "My concern is for our workers and whether some of the folks that have come down might be creating a health problem for the community, absolutely," Olivarri said Sunday.

Even a global health crisis can't keep people indoors. Over the Memorial Day weekend, videos of people celebrating the holiday at packed pool parties emerged on social media. One in particular, at Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks, has drawn national attention.
In a 16-second video clip, dozens are seen in swim wear, eating and, overall, looking like they're having a good time at a pool party in Lake of the Ozarks on Memorial Day weekend. No one appears to be social distancing or wearing face masks, and, in this time of coronavirus, that's grabbed national attention.
