COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Crowds are packing some bars and restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks despite a state social distancing order.

Video posted on social media shows a crammed pool over the holiday weekend where people lounged close together without masks.

Missouri’s statewide stay-at-home order expired earlier this month, but an order from the state health director requires people to keep at least 6 feet between each other until at least the end of May.

It’s unclear what steps Lake of the Ozarks-area health officials are taking to enforce that order.
