The Senate cases follow a Senate Republican retreat last week near Branson, though it’s unclear whether the infections are related or what role the event played. Gov. Mike Parson, who spoke at the retreat, posted photos showing a largely unmasked, indoor gathering.
The retreat appears to have violated basic COVID-19 measures put forward by Parson’s own administration, based on photos posted by the governor to Twitter on Nov. 11.
