Highlights of the story
- The Mid-Missouri resident visited a pool party venue this week, which was featured in widespread videos.
- The Camden County Health Department said that the person “is likely to have disease and possibly infection at the time of the visit.”
A week after the pictures of revelers on Memorial Day who had gathered at a pool party on Lake of the Ozarks At the Backwater Jacks Bar & Grill in Osage Beach, the Camden County Health Department made international headlines and announced that a Boone County resident tested positive for the novel corona virus after a vacation weekend visit to the Lake of the Ozarks area.
The Boone County theme arrived at the lake on Saturday, May 23, and “developed an illness” on Sunday. This emerges from a press release from LakeNewsOnline.com, which, like the news leader, is part of the USA TODAY Network.
The infected person “was likely to have an illness at the time of the visit and was potentially infectious,” the health agency said.

The health agency released a schedule for possible COVID-19 exposures “due to the need to inform mass numbers of unknown people”.
The Boone County Health Department investigated and Camden County said no cases were reported in Camden County this week.
The news leader contacted Camden County Health and Missouri Health Department late Friday for comment, but has yet to receive a response.
Reports of the 16-second video clip showing Blackwater Jack’s pool party have given warnings by regional health officials in St. Louis and Kansas City, including travel advice and advice for self-quarantine participants. the news leader and USA TODAY reported.
