At the Lake of the Ozarks during holiday weekend, it looked a lot like summer

Source: Kansas City Star

While many are relaxing and on vacation, for the most part, people are still following social distancing and limiting contact with others. Hannah Nasters, from Nashville, said they bought all their food from grocery stores and don’t plan to go to any bars or restaurants.

Besides riding on their boats, the only stops they take are for gas or to call it a day, Nasters said.

“It’s definitely nice to get out of the house,” Nasters said. “Good change of scenery. We’re not really going out to restaurants or anything like that. Still, it’s nice to do something a little bit different; be in the sunshine.”

Nick Topping, from Chicago, said it comes down to common sense. He also pointed out how being on a boat makes it easier to stay apart from other people compared to mingling in a park. Once on land, Topping said they brought masks for the weekend.

1. This sounds foreign to me.

Very few people are wearing masks anymore her in the Houston area. Mostly older people and people of color. We are going to be in so much trouble in a week or two. Even then, they won’t learn.

4. And..meanwhile back at the Missouri hair salon

Another stylist has infected many of those she worked on so the number is up to 140 between the two. So...how many of those 140 have infected hundreds more in that area??

(CNN)Two Missouri hairstylists potentially exposed 140 clients to corona virus when they worked for up to eight days this month while symptomatic, health officials said. The Springfield-Greene Health Department announced Saturday that a second hairstylist tested positive for corona virus, and may have exposed 56 clients at the same Great Clips salon.

Trump will be doing another pressers saying he takes NO responsibility for that one either.

6. Any of them drop by that Great Clips in Springfield before heading north??

That guy in the article came all the way from Chicago--about 1000 miles round trip to a lake? Must want it bad.

Whatever, guess the ones on the boats can keep to themselves but there are thousand and thousands at lake with no boat,they just go to be by the water.

7. Not to worry.

I read on D.U. -- must'a been mid-April, if you're washed in the blood of Jesus, you got nuthin' to worry about.

But then I get to thinkin'. Ya see. Nutthin' goes on in this world without God knowing about it and not being in His will. So if C-19 came to us, it was because of our drinkin' buggerin' gamblin' druggin' and whatever other sin I can't think of cause I didn't do it yet. So God sent C-19 to us as a warnin' or lesson.

Therefore, it stands to reason that if we try to stop C-19, we are interferin' with God's will. So let those people rejoice in their salvation.
