The Camden County Health Department says a Boone County resident in central Missouri who has tested positive for the coronavirus visited the Lake of the Ozarks during Memorial Day Weekend. Local and national media have plastered video and pictures on the news of crowded pool parties last weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks showing visitors ignoring social distance guidelines.

KOLR-TV in Springfield reports a list of places the person visited at the Lake of the Ozarks area include:

The public who may have been in these places is asked to monitor themselves for symptoms:

If you develop symptoms, the Health Department wants you to contact your physician, and isolate until test results are known and to stay home if you’re sick.
