Hundreds of partiers showed up at a pool party at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri amid the coronavirus pandemic this Memorial Day weekend.

A reporter posted video on Twitter.com showing a crowded pool party at Ozarks Lake on Saturday.

Scott Pasmore, an anchor for CNN affiliate KTVK, shot the drone video footage, MSN.com reported. "No covid concerns at the lake of the ozarks," he captioned the video.

The pool party violates social distancing guidelines and other precautionary measures.

The Lake of the Ozarks expected a large turnout despite the lockdown order in Missouri.

Missouri confirmed 11,800 COVID-19 cases with 680 deaths since February.
