LAKE OF THE OZARKS (KMOV.com) — Vacationers flocked to the Lake of the Ozarks for Memorial Day weekend.

Many took this break from work or coronavirus woes to get a sense of normalcy to mark the unofficial start of summer. 

However, several videos taken from the Lake of the Ozark Saturday showed people not social distancing. Hundreds of people were packed into a pool and no one was seen wearing a mask.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s reopening plan specifically allowed gyms and hotel swimming pools to reopen. Strict social distancing and sanitization guidelines are required to be followed.

The City of St. Louis and St. Louis County plan to reopen some pools in early June.
