Remember Social Distancing? Crowds Partying in Lake of the Ozarks Clearly Don’t




With the start of summer right around the corner, people all over the country are gearing up and ready to celebrate. There’s just one little problem with the latest summer plans: COVID-19 is still infecting people in mass numbers.

Despite months of social distancing and people everywhere practicing self-quarantining, the novel coronavirus has amounted to 1.66 million confirmed cases and 97,477 deaths. Granted, 336,000 people have recovered from the virus — but that doesn’t mask the danger still lurking in large groups of people.

Memorial Day weekend is a holiday that is typically celebrated with friends and family outdoors. Based on a video circulating on Twitter of a crowded pool in Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., people are completely abandoning the idea of social distancing and are proceeding into summer in full force.

Here’s a look at video footage posted by Good Morning Arizona anchor Scott Pasmore.

Lake of the Ozarks is one of the most popular travel destinations in the state of Missouri, covering a total of 54,000 surface acres. According to the Lake of the Ozarks Convention and Visitor Bureau, a majority of tourists who visit the lake come from St. Louis, Kansas City, central and southern Illinois, Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska.

Although it’s not clear where they’re from, hundreds of people can seen splashing around in a pool in multiple videos. The alarming part about it is that not one person in the video is seen wearing a mask, and they are definitely not respecting the 6-feet-apart social distancing rule. (Despite a large sign reminding them to do so.)

Missouri Governor Mike Parson came up with a reopening plan that allowed gyms and hotel swimming pools to reopen — along with strict social distancing and sanitation guidelines. Perhaps the evens of the holiday weekend might prompt him to walk back these re-openings?

So far, roughly 11,800 people in Missouri have tested positive for the coronavirus, with 680 having died from COVID-19, according to state data.

People are crowding Daytona Beach in Florida, too.

Lake of the Ozarks isn’t the only place where people are welcoming summer with open arms. Beachgoers at Daytona Beach, Fla., are making headlines for overcrowding the beach. 

A video taken from a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office helicopter shows hundreds of people blocking traffic as they gathered on a busy Daytona Beach street.

Although it has not been confirmed, Florida police think the massive crowd congregated due to an unofficial event shared online. The video shows people dancing and partying down the street.

“Traffic is completely shut down with probably 200 people in the middle of the road,” a voice from the helicopter said in the video. “Trying to figure out what’s going on. It’s people, looks like they’re climbing on top of a car.”

Evidently, someone inside the car was throwing wads of cash out onto the street from the car’s sunroof, causing chaos on the street. Later that night, five people ended up in the hospital after gunshots were fired through the crowd.

Hopefully, what’s going down in Lake of the Ozarks and Daytona doesn’t become a trend in other areas of the U.S. — and hopefully, hundreds of people aren’t infected as a result of the crowds ignoring social distancing guidelines. It looks like we’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to know for sure.

The best way to prevent contracting or spreading the coronavirus is with thorough hand washing and social distancing. If you feel you may be experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, which include persistent cough (usually dry), fever, shortness of breath, and fatigue, please call your doctor before going to get tested.

Streaming this week: ‘Space Force,’ ‘Ramy’ and ‘Hannah Gadsby: Douglas’




One of the new streaming shows I’ve been looking forward to most, Netflix’s Space Force with Steve Carell, debuts this week. I definitely need something funny and smart in the lineup— I started watching I Know This Much is True and now catching up on Ozark, so a less morbid/bleak show will be a welcome change.

Here are three shows on the lighter side (or at least, the less-dystopian side) coming to streaming this week:

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas (Netflix, May 26th)

Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby, probably best known for her stunning, Peabody Award-winning standup show Nanette, is back, bringing her latest comedy standup show Douglas to Netflix (fwiw, Douglas is the name of one of her dogs).

Ramy, Season Two (Hulu, May 29th)

Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan returns in this heartfelt comedy about a man striving to better understand himself and his faith. The second season includes Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali as a sheikh trying to give the title character the guidance he craves. Ramy Youssef stars.

Space Force (Netflix, May 29th)

The Verge’s Julia Alexander describes Space Force as “if Michael Scott from The Office was given a team of scientists and astronauts and free rein to develop a program that would give the United States complete dominance over space” which sounds amazing tbh. Steve Carell, John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow, Jane Lynch, and the late Fred Willard star.

New trailers: Tenet, Space Force, Da 5 Bloods, and more




I forgot to write about Westworld after its third season wrapped up the other week. In a lot of ways, I enjoyed the third season more than the earlier ones — it was far more coherent, it built out some cool sci-fi worlds, and Aaron Paul was a great addition to the cast.

But the season also left behind what was, arguably, the thing that made Westworld tick: overly complicated and gimmicky narrative tricks that leave the viewer perpetually trying to make sense of what they’re watching.

The best part of Westworld’s first two seasons wasn’t even watching the show, it was talking about it later and trying to decipher the twists it was trying to pull off. In a lot of ways, yes, it was very gimmicky, but it was also fun. Westworld season 3 was stronger as a narrative for forgoing that, but it meant we were left with just the chaos that is Westworld’s actual plot.

Check out nine trailers from this week below.


Here’s the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, a movie that he insists will debut in theaters. It looks good — it seems mysterious, action packed, and filled with dudes in suits just like any good Nolan film. As for when we’ll be able to see it? Theoretically July 17th, and theoretically in theaters.

Da 5 Bloods

Spike Lee’s latest film puts a twist on the war movie: it’s about four vets who return to Vietnam and begin to confront the horrors that occurred while they were there. It comes to Netflix on June 12th.

Space Force

For a series that rapidly came together after a ridiculous presidential announcement, Space Force seems to have turned into something pretty funny. The latest trailer gives a look at even more of the stars taking part in Steve Carell’s new comedy. It comes to Netflix on May 29th.


There’s another trippy and mysterious trailer out for Antebellum, which has Janelle Monáe starring as a woman who seems to slip through time between modern day and the era of American slavery. After being delayed by the pandemic, it’s now scheduled to come out on August 21st.

The Old Guard

Netflix has a ludicrous-looking new action film coming up that stars Charlize Theron as the leader of a mercenary group that never dies. Choice dialogue: “Just because we keep living doesn’t mean we stop hurting.” It comes out July 10th.

One Man and His Shoes

Hot on the heels of The Last Dance, Vice is putting out a documentary specifically focused on the Air Jordans and how they became so popular. It airs May 25th on Vice TV.

John Lewis: Good Trouble

Director Dawn Porter has assembled an all-star cast of politicians — AOC, Stacey Abrams, and Ayanna Pressley, among others — to talk about the legacy of Representative John Lewis, a civil rights leader who came into elected office after marching alongside Martin Luther King Jr. in the ’60s. It comes out July 3rd.

The Wanting Mare

The Wanting Mare takes place in a gritty, dreamy fantasy city from which residents seem to be ready to escape. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, but the immediate reason to check it out seems to be this: the film is executive produced by Shane Carruth, the director of Primer. The film was also, according to the press release, “almost entirely” shot inside a storage unit and is basically composed of a ton of VFX shots. The movie is premiering at a festival this weekend, so there’s no wide release date yet.


The idea behind Infamous seems to be roughly: what if Bonnie and Clyde had social media? And I hate to say that… it might be a good idea. It comes out June 12th.
