Large Bike Rally Gathering at Lake of the Ozarks Causing Concerns

A large motorcycle rally ongoing at the Lake of the Ozarks this week has health officials worrying that the state’s already fast-growing number of coronavirus cases may spike even higher.

The Bikefest Lake of the Ozarks drew in around 125,000 people last year.

This years event began on Wednesday, and will include five days of rides, vendor fairs, concerts and stops at area bars and restaurants.

Missouri currently has no statewide mask requirement nor capacity limitations, however several local governments have implemented their own restrictions.
