The holiday weekend lured many Americans to crowded recreational areas despite coronavirus-related guidelines for social distancing. In Missouri, people packed together—often without masks—at bars and restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks. A video on social media showed people crammed into a pool at the popular vacation spot. Authorities in the Tampa, Fla., area closed full parking lots to keep large crowds from growing even larger on Gulf Coast beaches. Other Memorial Day celebrations, however, were more subdued or moved online.
