Missouri health officials call for self-quarantine of partiers at Lake of the Ozarks

Source: Today

Images of a jampacked pool party at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri over the Memorial Day weekend prompted St. Louis County to issue a travel advisory and the Kansas City health director to call for self-quarantine of the revelers.

The advisory by the St. Louis County Public Health Department cited news reports of large crowds at Lake of the Ozarks, where hundreds of people were recorded squeezed closely together amid the coronavirus epidemic.

"This reckless behavior endangers countless people and risks setting us back substantially from the progress we have made in slowing the spread of COVID

The health department expressed concern in its travel advisory that people from the St. Louis area were at Lake of the Ozarks over the weekend. "Any person who has travelled and engaged in this behavior should self-quarantine for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result for COVID-19," the advisory said.

1. We'll see if they comply. This is the honor system. My question is why did the water park allow

all of the folks in - rhetorical question.

2. Of course the type of geniuses that were there are certain to feel remorse and self-quarantine

with meticulous care. Just a momentary lapse of judgement. These are good people. Fine people. Mighty fine people.

3. "The health department expressed concern in its travel advisory "

Looks like Susan Collins joined the St Louis County Health Dept.

8. A paper that everyone has to sign in their escrow closing documents

Is something to the effect that they did not engage in any fraudulent conduct in pursuing the mortgage loan.

I often ask myself, if you defrauded your mortgage company, would you even consider declining to sign the paper at closing to get the loan? Of course not.

Same thing here. If you were brash and stupid and egocentric enough to attend these events, you wouldn't then self-quarantine afterwards. Too little, too late from the public health folks in MO.

And by the way: FU party revelers. If each of you caught the virus and perished, I wouldn't cry for you. But if you start passing that shit on to people who DO take precautions, I hope there's a God and your justice is swift.

10. Unfortunately for a lot of us Missouri residents, we're going to be stuck w/ the bills, if their ...

medical plans (the party people at the Lake of the Ozarks) don't pay up (or their parents). The state of Missouri and those rural counties in MO are totally irresponsible and reckless in allowing such events and crowds to gather. They knew better.

I hope that the hotel that hosted the event (and others along the strip at the Lake of the Ozarks) all pay a price for such reckless behavior. And we just came out of an almost two month stay at home ordeal. It pisses me off immensely that they thought so little of the rest of us in Missouri and the sacrifices we all made in MO to fight the spread of the CV.

I blame the republican governor. I blame the republican legislature. I blame all republicans. I blame all of the party goers.

As far as I'm concerned, you all can take a flying leap over the edge of the cliff somewhere.
