"No COVID concerns at the Lake of the Ozarks."

Meghan McCain and others have retweeted the video over 13 thousand times and growing. 

"Coronavirus does not spread in water, but it does spread through people in close proximity. Staying at least 6 feet from others is particularly important at pools or beaches because masks are impractical in water," according to CNN. 

From the looks of the video, there is not one person was wearing a face mask either. 

"The gathering violates social distancing measures intended to limit the spread of Covid-19.
