The Stone County Health Department’s investigation into the COVID-19 Outbreak at Kanakuk Kamp’s K-2 Facility in Lampe continues to reveal more positive tests for the virus.
In a release Monday, SCHD says 82 Campers, Counselors, and Staff have tested positive for the virus. According to the release, 31 cases were tested on-site at the camp while the other cases were detected after individuals had returned home. Currently, only one of the Kanakuk cases resides in Stone County while the release indicates that some of the cases do reside in Taney County. The Taney County Health Department released on Monday that the county total count currently is at 97 with 64 active.
Stone County Health Department Director Pam Burnett tells Ozarks First that they are working with the Kanakuk Kamp to make their plan stronger going forward.
Also during the Ozarks First Feature, a parent of two of the campers said there wasn’t much communication from the camp when the outbreak took place. Ozarks First did attempt to reach Kanakuk Kamps for more information but no response as of yet.
The Ozarks First Website has more details on this story.
