PAY ATTENTION

Beware the ides of June after huge numbers of conservative/fascists congregated in Lake Havasu City spreading the virus in unprecedented numbers. Here is what we can look forward to - A Memorial Day partygoer who visited several Lake of the Ozarks bars in Missouri has tested positive for the coronavirus, the Camden County health department reported. As multiple sources confirmed, over Memorial Day weekend, many of those bars and nearby swimming pools were packed with people not social distancing and not wearing masks. The Missouri bars are also a popular vacation spot for many from Chicago. The county health department released details about which bars the infected person visited "due to the need to inform mass numbers of unknown people." The Boone County resident "was incubating the illness" and infectious while visiting the Backwater Jacks bar and Shady Gators and Lazy Gators Pool on Saturday, followed by visits to Buffalo Wild Wings and again Shady Gators on Sunday. People who visited these areas should be on alert for COVID-19 symptoms, the department said. There are over 12,500 coronavirus cases and 738 deaths in Missouri as of Saturday, per the state's health department.

The Topock 66 Resort and their bar/restaurant/pool area also a great place to mingle, celebrate and shake off that cabin fever. I cannot imagine all those "mask-less" partygoers here on Memorial Day weekend and how much "good cheer" they spread and now more of the same ahead as the city father dullards opened the Bridgewater Channel for all those virus free, fun seeking Californians to mmor their boats. Their petri dish now has 106,878 cases (4,176 deaths), number 4 in the nation. Go Lake Havasu, "Play Like You Mean It"
