Cellphone video shows massive pool party in Missouri amid virus

National

LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. (CNN Newsource) — Social distancing was out the window at a holiday pool party in Missouri.

This video shows a crowd of people packing a swimming pool near the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday.

They seem to be partying and mingling – much less six-foot distancing.

The video was shot by CNN affiliate KTVK.

Missouri’s reopening plan – announced earlier this month – says that social distancing is still a must.

Coronavirus does not spread in water.

But staying six-feet apart is particularly important at pools because swimmers don’t wear face masks.

In neighboring Arkansas, several people contracted the coronavirus after going to a high school pool party.
