Partygoer Who Attended Ozarks Memorial Day Gathering in Missouri Tests Positive for Coronavirus


Missouri health officials are warning those who attended the Memorial Day weekend parties at the Lake of Ozarks after one person tested positive for coronavirus — and may have been infected throughout the weekend.

A Boone County resident was reported to be at multiple bars during the May 23-24 holiday weekend and began to "develop illness on Sunday," according to a Camden County Health Department press release.

Officials added that the resident was "likely incubating illness and possibly infectious at the time of the visit."

In order to alert the "mass number of unknown people" who attended the parties in Osage Beach — from which videos went viral as people ignored social distancing guidelines put forth amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — health officials released a detailed timeline of the subject's location throughout the weekend.

On May 23, the partygoer was to Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill between approximately 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. local time, and again between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. The subject also visited Shady Gators and Lazy Gators Pool from 5:40 p.m. through 9 p.m.

The following day, the unidentified patient was seen at Buffalo Wild Wings from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. before visiting Shady Gators from approximately 2:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. The person then took a taxi from Shady Gators to a private residence around 7 p.m., officials reported.

Health officials are currently conducting an investigation with Lake Area Health Departments and there have been no additional cases reported in Camden County, according to the release.

Anyone who may have been at the subject's location is urged to "monitor for symptoms" including fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell.

"If you develop symptoms, please contact your physician, and isolate until test results are known. Please Stay Home If You Are Sick!" officials added.

News of the positive partygoer comes three days after the St. Louis County Department of Public Health asked anybody who attended the parties to "self-quarantine for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result for COVID-19."

“Recent news reports indicate that many people, including those from the St. Louis region, did not follow any protective practices over the holiday weekend,” the public health department said in a statement after footage of the partying surfaced. “Many members of the public and employers have asked how to ensure that people who do not follow social distancing practices do not spread COVID-19 to others when they return to St. Louis and to their workplace.”

In a news release announcing the advisory, County Executive Dr. Sam Page said "reckless behavior" is "setting us back substantially from the progress we have made in slowing the spread of COVID-19."

“I encourage everyone to follow the Department of Public Health advisory to determine a safe path forward in the workplace," Page added.

Donald Trump’s Post Flagged by Twitter for Threatening to Shoot Minneapolis Protesters

Twitter notes that the president’s post breaks its rules about ‘glorifying violence’ as he warns demonstrators, ‘When the looting starts, the shooting starts.’

AceShowbiz -Twitter risks irking Donald Trump again after taking issue with one of his latest tweets. The social media application marked the president’s post as having “glorified violence,” just hours after he signed an executive order threatening to strip the company of protections against liability.

In the said tweet, Trump weighed in on the riots in Minneapolis. Borrowing a quote from a former Miami police chief who said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he threatened to fire shots at protesters.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” read the tweet in question.

The problematic tweet is now hidden and has been replaced with Twitter’s notice which reads, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

Explaining its move, the company said the move was “in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts.”

Trump’s tweet has also sparked backlash from other social media users, with one confused user asking, “Did trump just declare war?” A second commenter remarked, “He said he finna shoot people… that was a mistake.” Another added, “This is the same man that called neo nazis and white supremacist ‘very fine people.’ “

Meanwhile, Trump posted the tweet in response to George Floyd protests which have spread nationwide. Since Wednesday, May 27, videos circulated online of people looting Target. On Thursday, protesters took over the 3rd Precinct of the Minneapolis Police, and lit it and buildings surrounding it on fire.

On early Friday, CNN reporter Omar Jimenez along with several crew members were arrested by Minneapolis Police while conducting a live television report covering the protests. Police claimed they were being detained because they were not following instructions to move however live television coverage proved otherwise, but CNN later said in a statement that the three journalists were arrested “for doing their jobs, despite identifying themselves.” Jimenez was released from custody shortly afterward.

Newcastle Races: Five horses to watch as racing gets ready to return with nearly 400 entries for June 1 card

WITH 369 entries made by race-thirsty trainers for Monday's card at Newcastle, it's fair to say the sport is buzzing to return.

And the same applies to punters who undoubtedly got stuck into the formbook the second those runners filtered through. We lend a helping hand here with five exciting entries to get the juices flowing.

ART POWER (2.00) – Tim Easterby

This horse had two runs as a juvenile; a debut third behind the useful Ascension before routing his rivals in a decent race at York.

He's by a sire that can do little wrong in Dark Angel and looks a sprinter going places in the King Power colours.

He would carry a 7lbs penalty here, but could be a Group animal in the making if he has kicked on over the winter.

Expect Silvestre De Sousa to make the long journey up to Newcastle with this horse one he'll be hoping can help on his way to regaining the Jockey's Championship.

MOLL DAVIS (4.00) – George Scott

This filly has been on many a punters shortlist since an eye-catching yet agonising effort at Glorious Goodwood last season.

She hasn't been the most consistent since but undoubtedly is a smart horse. George Scott believes in her and a mark of 92 could yet prove lenient.

She should be up to competing at stakes level this season and should get a run here if she is declared. That looks to be the intention with jockey Harry Bentley booked.

ALGINAK (4.00) – Sir Michael Stoute

This lightly-raced four-year-old could make his handicap debut in the feature handicap over an extended mile-and-a-half.

He delivered on the fourth time of asking when a well-backed jolly at Kempton last September.

He has been off since but a mark of 89 doesn't look out of reach judged on that effort and an earlier second to Humanitarian.

Oisin Murphy is booked to ride and why he will need a couple to come out, this son of Sea The Moon is still an entire and a horse to watch. Bigger and better things could well await.

LUCK ON SUNDAY (4.30) – John Quinn

A cool two-million euro purchase from the Goffs Orby sale, this Galileo filly is entered up to make her debut on Monday's card.

It demonstrates the continued support of Phoenix Thoroughbreds to the Quinn yard and as a sister to Alice Springs, is surely the nicest pedigree Quinn has had in his Yorkshire stable.

But races aren't run on paper and she will need some luck in the ballot if we are to see her strut her stuff. But with the race likely to be split into two divisions, Oisin Murphy could well be on another top prospect come Monday afternoon.

DUEL IN THE SUN (4.30) – Charlie Fellowes

Another horse hopeful of making his debut on Monday, his trainer put this three-year-old forwards as one of his brightest prospects in a recent interview with us.

He goes in the Roy colours also seen on stable stars King Ottokar and King Carney and there's no doubt this son of Sea The Stars looks the part on paper.

He was bought from the breeze-ups so should be forward enough and Kieran Shoemark is booked to take the ride.

Barbecues and garden parties to be allowed from end of June as hopes grow families can enjoy summer together – The Sun

BRITS will be able to meet their friends and families again as garden parties and barbecues are set to be allowed from the end of June.

Boris Johnson unveiled the latest plans for a further relaxation of lockdown rules yesterday.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

The Prime Minister said small social gatherings will be allowed to take place from the end of June.

He hailed the move as a step on the road to "rebuilding our country" and urged Brits to "spend" to help the economy to "bounce back".

Mr Johnson said people should "get out and enjoy themselves in the open air from June 1" if they can.

The new proposals may be part of a wider move to allow people to mix in "social bubbles" of up to 10 people outdoors.

'SOCIAL BUBBLES'

The Government’s 50-page roadmap to end the lockdown suggested that people can designate another household to socialise with.

The document reads: "The intention of this change would be to allow those who are isolated some more social contact, and to reduce the most harmful effects of the current social restrictions, while continuing to limit the risk of chains of transmission."

The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) is understood to have advised ministers that infection from coronavirus is much less likely outdoors.

The PM said the relaxation of measures was possible as infection rates have remained low and he thanked Brits for following social distancing rules.

According to the latest figures, 261,184 people in the UK have tested positive for Covid-19 and 36,914 have died.

Mr Johnson said at the Downing Street press conference yesterday: "We are making good progress, but that progress is conditional, provisional.

"We must keep reducing the incidence of this disease."

A senior government source said last night: "We are looking at ways in which we can ease some social restrictions, so we can have some social contact."

From June 1, Reception, Year One and Year Six pupils will return to school, Mr Johnson said.

Year 10 and Year 12 students are expected to go back to their classes on June 15.

Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to get back to business from June 1.

SOCIAL CONTACT

The Prime Minister said: "I want to give the retail sector notice of our intentions to reopen shops, so they too can get ready.

"So I can announce that it is our intention to allow outdoor markets to reopen from June 1, subject to all premises being made Covid-secure, as well as car showrooms, which often have significant outdoor space and where it is generally easier to apply social distancing.

"We know that the transmission of the virus is lower outdoors and that it is easier to follow Covid-secure guidelines in open spaces.

"That means we can also allow outdoor markets to reopen in a safe way that does not risk causing a second wave of the virus."

All other non-essential shops –  from department stores to small independent shops -will be allowed to reopen their doors from June 15.

‘The Lovebirds’ Is Netflix’s Number-One Movie, ‘Scoob!’ Leads VOD Charts

On the usual Memorial Day holiday, the summer box office is just reaching high gear. This weekend was supposed to launch “F9” into the stratosphere — until the pandemic forced Universal to push back the latest “Fast & Furious” franchise title to April 2, 2021.

As May comes to a close, “Scoob!” is continuing its premium VOD success for Warner Bros. (Generally, the top-ranked titles are similar to recent weeks.) This weekend’s newbie was Paramount’s once-planned April release “The Lovebirds,” starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, which showed up at Netflix, while several other originals launched with varying reactions.

Here are some topline results:

“The Lovebirds” went straight to number one on Netflix.

The first 2020 theatrical studio title to be sold to a streamer (others followed, including Sony’s “Greyhound” to Apple), Michael Showalter’s crime comedy rose to the top film spot at Netflix as soon as it was released last Friday. We don’t yet know the volume of interest, but unlike the Russo brothers’ original action film “Extraction,” “The Lovebirds” hasn’t risen to #1 among all programs, where two episodic series rank higher.

“The Wrong Missy” starring David Spade, produced by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, fell from number one to number two among movies. The animated original “The Willoughbys” remains in the Netflix top 10 as the streamer claims that the film has been sampled in 37-million households worldwide (with multiple viewers) in its first month of availability.

Popular on IndieWire

“Scoob!” soared everywhere.

“Scoob!” is the first movie to rank at number one at all four of our VOD viewing charts since IndieWire started tracking them in mid-March. While the volume of revenues remains unknown, the title led all total transactions, even when priced three-times higher than most other offerings.

Universal’s “Trolls World Tour,” which had already generated a reported $95 million several weeks ago, continues its strong showing, ranking as high as number two at Amazon Prime and FandangoNOW; for some reason, iTunes continues to not show it.

Many military movies popped up on multiple charts, filling up one-third of iTunes’ Top 100 on Monday, with Oscar winner “The Hurt Locker” ranked at number four.


“Military Wives”

Other new movies are starting to pop up.

“Blood and Money” (Screen Media), starring Tom Berenger as a Maine hunter who stumbles into a crime scene, is number eight at Spectrum at the standard non-premium $6.99 price. Now in its third weekend, “Capone” (Vertical) stuck around at Spectrum and FandangoNOW while dropping elsewhere. The distributor announced during the week it had taken in $2.5 million in its first 10 days.

Among other new releases, Bleecker Street’s “Military Wives,” a British comedy from Peter Catteano (“The Full Monty”), which premiered at last year’s Toronto, is already at number 24 at iTunes — and unusually is simultaneously streaming at Hulu. Neon’s well-reviewed Sundance prize-winning documentary “The Painter and the Thief” is number 90 at iTunes. Paramount’s “Body Cam” with Mary J. Blige showed some initial weekday interest at Fandango.

Not yet registering on our VOD charts are new releases including IFC’s “The Trip to Greece,” Bruce Willis’ most recent VOD release “Survive the Night” (Lionsgate), and Greenwich’s documentary “Diane Kennedy: Doing Nothing.” (Some titles above may have separate outlets including company sites.)

Coming up this week is music-world drama “The High Note” (Focus Features), starring Dakota Johnson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the first of several higher profile non-family premium debuts over upcoming weeks. Focus is also giving Jon Stewart’s “Irresistible” a premium VOD release on June 26.

Drive-in theater totals increase again.

The number of open-air theaters has risen to over 300, with about half of these drive-ins. Outdoor theaters continue to provide nearly all of the current box-office revenue, with their audiences mostly satisfied with recent also at-home releases (not including “Scoob!”) or older library films.

Three-day weekend grosses came in at over $2 million (with double-feature grosses listed twice). That’s a pickup over last week.

The top four titles are from Universal, which has led the field since its day-and-date release of “Trolls World Tour” at number one. IFC’s horror thriller “The Wretched,” also on VOD, seems to be the next highest, adding around $200,000 through Monday and approaching $600,000 (again in most cases sharing that drive-in revenues with non-IFC titles). IFC Midnight releases multiple horror and other genre titles through the year to VOD and token indoor dates, but not drive-ins normally. In this case, they have smartly taken advantage of the situation and found an additional revenue source.

Saban Films also offered “We Summon the Darkness,” a rock-and-roll horror film released last month on VOD to theaters, with $30,000 reported in 10 drive-ins. Also, “Arkansas,” three weeks after the Liam Hemsworth original hit VOD from Lionsgate, added theaters, with a reported gross close to $80,000.

So far, “Capone” has not been provided to theaters.

Phillip Schofield says 'talking saved me' after coming out as gay

Phillip Schofield has said talking ‘saved’ him, three months after coming out as gay.

The 58-year-old confirmed back in February that after 27 years of marriage to wife Steph, he has come to terms with the fact that he is gay.

And he gave insight to the inner turmoil he suffered, by sharing a fundraiser for a young man who took his own life.

Schofield shared a GoFundMe set up in memory of Morgan Mcglynn, to raise money for Guernsey Mind in an effort to prevent male suicide. 

The page read: ‘Morgan was a very troubled soul and even through he was surrounded by a loving caring family and many caring and devoted friends this wasn’t enough for him to open up.

‘Tragically Morgan took his own life in the early hours of Sunday morning  17th May 2020.

‘We are heartbroken at his loss and have started this fundraising page in the small hope that we can prevent others suffering as we are losing someone they love as we love Morgan so much. Our hearts are breaking.

Phillip tweeted the link and wrote: ‘Another heartbreaking story. There is strength in talking. Please don’t try to fight your head on your own. Talking saved me #bekind #talk.’

The This Morning host previously spoke about having dark thoughts when coming to terms with his sexuality.

He told The Sun: ‘There is no question, in those moments, when I couldn’t see a way forward, it was Steph and my girls — through their strength — who hauled me back.

‘But I understand completely why so many men and women in this country get to the point of suicide.

‘I had Steph and I had my girls and I don’t think I could have left them like that. But if I hadn’t have had their support, then who knows?’

And in his statement, which was shared on social media before being read out on This Morning by Holly Willoughby, Phil said: ‘You never know what’s going on in someone’s seemingly perfect life, what issues they are struggling with, or the state of their wellbeing – and so you won’t know what has been consuming me for the last few years. With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.

‘This is something that has caused many heartbreaking conversations at home. I have been married to Steph for nearly 27 years, and we have two beautiful grown-up daughters, Molly and Ruby. 

‘My family have held me so close: they have tried to cheer me up, to smother me with kindness and love, despite their own confusion. Yet I still can’t sleep and there have been some very dark moments.’

Since then, he has starred in an emotional mental health campaign urging Britain to ‘get talking’, alongside stars including Ant and Dec, Gordon Ramsay, David Walliams, Holly Willoughby, will.i.am, Lorraine Kelly, Laura Whitmore, Iain Stirling and Harry Redknapp.

Phil recently denied that he has moved out of his family home, as he spends lockdown with Steph, Molly, Ruby and Ruby’s boyfriend in Oxfordshire.

Dan Levy Makes Impassioned Plea for People to Wear Coronavirus Masks as an 'Act of Kindness'

Dan Levy wants you to rethink the reasoning behind wearing a mask during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Schitt's Creek star posted an impassioned plea on Instagram earlier this week, urging those opposed to wearing a mask to think of it not as an "infringement on your freedom" but rather as a simple "act of kindness."

"I've been seeing a lot of viral videos about people who are actively not wearing masks because they perceive it to be an infringement on their freedom," he began. "I suppose, in a way I can understand the frustration of being told what to do, which is why I would like to propose a re-contextualization of this whole thing."

He continued: "Imagine seeing it not as an infringement on your freedom, but rather the simplest, easiest act of kindness that you can do in a day. Not just for yourself, but for other people who might have autoimmune issues. People who, if they were to contract COVID with those issues might have some devastating repercussions."

Levy concluded by imploring his 1.8 million followers to make wearing a mask their "good deed" of the day.

"If you have the freedom to leave your house, if you have the good health to leave your house, why not put on a mask, make it your good deed for the day and do something nice for yourself and other people," he said.

Levy's sister and Schitt's Creek costar, Sarah Levy, showed her support with the comment, "So good."

Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan also approved the message, writing "Thank you Mr. Levy."

Along with continuing to abide by social-distancing guidelines, last month, the CDC recommended that all Americans wear some sort of cloth face covering when they leave the house. 

The guideline was put in place after new data revealed that a “significant portion” of those infected with coronavirus are asymptomatic — meaning they never show symptoms but could be “silent spreaders” of the virus. Wearing a face covering helps ensure that asymptomatic people don’t spread it unknowingly, which is the primary concern, and also protects the wearer from potentially catching it from others.

The CDC has advised against the general public using surgical masks or N-95 respirators, which should be reserved for healthcare workers and others working on the front lines. Instead, the CDC suggests using a simple cloth covering, like a bandana or scarf.

Sibling cats found dumped in taped-up crisps boxes

Mayhew Animal Home is appealing for help to look after the animals they rescue after two cats were dumped in taped up crisps boxes the night of a storm.

Three-year-old Wotsit and his sister Pringles were discovered outside Mayhew Animal Home each inside a small cardboard box, taped up and with no air holes.

Their boxes were being battered on all sides by strong winds and rain, and left a little longer the cats could have suffocated.

Thankfully, animal welfare officers spotted the boxes as soon as they arrived at work and brought them straight inside, carefully cutting through the tape and freeing the cats.

A health assessment revealed that the two kitties had no injuries and were – luckily – in good physical form despite their terrifying ordeal.

They were settled in a cosy cabin in the shelter’s cattery so they could recover.

Shortly after the pair were rehomed, and are now both enjoying their lives with two new loving owners.

But Wotsit and Pringles’ story is far from a rarity.

Hundreds of pets are being left out in the cold, whether due to fears they could spread coronavirus, difficulty caring for animals hastily adopted in lockdown, or unstable housing situations.

Mayhew, like other shelters, has had to pause the adoption process and scale back operations due to the coronavirus pandemic, but animals keep being abandoned and neglected, meaning work piles up with little funds to look after pets in need.

It costs over £6,000 a day to run Mayhew Animal Home and they’re entirely funded by public donations.

As well as sending out the animal welfare team to rescue animals in need, the home also works with vulnerable pet owners across society and offers temporary foster care, free or low cost veterinary care, and extensive support and advice.

And with rehoming difficult to carry out in lockdown, the shelter has to care for a load of pets while they wait to find their new families, providing them with food, flea treatment, and litter.

To help continue rescuing, caring for, and rehoming animals like Wotsit and Pringles, the charity is appealing for £5 donations, which you can make online.

Boosie Badazz Declares Love for Eve While Listing Top 5 Hottest Female Rappers

During a new interview, the rapper is asked to name his top five hottest women in rap industry, though he mistakenly lists them based on talents instead at first.

AceShowbizLil Boosie a.k.a. Boosie Badazz shared Top 5 hottest femcees in his standard during a new interview. The Baton Rouge rapper recently stopped by VladTV where he was asked to name his Top 5 hottest women in rap industry. However, he mistakenly listed them based on talents instead at first.

Lil’ Kim, originator. Number one through the nineties,” he started. “It’s Lil’ Kim, Trina, Cardi B, [Nicki Minaj]. That’s four. Lil Kim, Trina, Cardi B, Nicki what I done seen. What other female rapper?”

Vlad then made sure that Boosie listed them based on their looks, not lyrical skills, and then that was when he switched things up. “Eve! Eve. I’ve been in love with Eve forever,” he admitted.

Boosie later shared why he put Nicki and Cardi on the list and what set them apart, according to him. He alluded that Nicki deserved the spot because so many other women wanted to be her, while the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker was also added because of her thuggish side.

“It’s a difference between the bad b***h in Cardi and the bad b***h in Nicki,” he explained. “Trina, you gotta go with the baddest b***h.”

As for his last choice, Boosie named Mulatto. “I’m going with Mulatto… You gotta go with that yellow… Yeah. Go with the fresh,” he said.

This is not the first time for Boosie to publicly show admiration to female celebrities. Prior to this, he shot his shots at Rihanna as he admitted to sliding in Rih’s DMs in addition to publicly declaring his infatuation with her. He imagined her being the step-mother of his kids. “Rihanna call the phone,” he said in an interview with The Bumbu Room before doing his best to imitate Rih’s voice, ” ‘Congratulations on your victory. Good job, Boo.’ I hit up bae. ‘Man, let me fly you out man. For real, man. I’m f**ked up without you RiRi.’ “

Man kills ex-girlfriend, her two daughters in jealous rage

A South Carolina man furious that his ex-girlfriend went to the beach with another man fatally shot her and her two daughters before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

Gabriel Jordan, 37, committed the carnage on Sunday outside the St. Matthews home of his ex, Shanta Singleton, according to a police report obtained by The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg.

Cops said Jordan initially choked Singleton before shooting her when one of her four daughters at the home tried to intervene.

Jordan then shot 12-year-old Tre’vay Stroman after she jumped on his back, Calhoun County deputies said.

He next took aim at 18-year-old Shantasia Stroman, who was struck in the arm and escaped to a neighbors.

As Stroman ran away, she saw Jordan chasing her 15-year-old sister, Essence Stroman, into their house. Essence was later found dead, according to the report.
