Rolla Missouri Events
Parents at Rolla High School in Missouri are dancing a homecoming dance, but only after what local health officials have classified as a potential superspreader event has turned into a "superspreader event" that has infected at least seven people and some parents and students have refused to cooperate with local health officials in the search for contacts. As of Friday, there were four confirmed cases of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) in Rolla, Missouri, where the school is located, with a population of 44,789, the Missouri Department of Health said. The last day for overnight stays was Monday and Tuesday, when 70 new cases were recorded and 30 on those days.
Coates pointed out that several events took place in the same week as the dance, including a homecoming dance, a football and basketball game, and a dance party. Many of those events - including football and basketball games, football practice, and basketball and volleyball games - all took place in the same dance week, he noted.
There were other school events during the week that raised concerns that the dance may have contributed to the spread of the coronavirus, Coates told the Daily Beast.
After local cases have already overwhelmed the Department of Health and a super event is making national headlines, they plan a "super event" at the University of Missouri-St. Louis on Saturday. The event could be one of more cases expected in the coming weeks, the CDC said.

The Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy, founded in 1870 and known from 1964 to 2007 as the University of Missouri - Rolla (UMR), is the oldest and largest private university in the United States with over 2,000 students. Missouri University for Science and Technology is nationally and internationally known for its research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and has a functioning nuclear reactor, the first to be built on campus to scale Stonehenge. It is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest association of science and technology companies. It was awarded the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Science Foundation (NSF) Award for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (NIST).
The rolling hills and forests of Rolla make it a destination for outdoor enthusiasts, so pack a picnic basket and head off. With ample picnic options, including individual barbecue tables, you'll find trees, shady terraces overlooking the springs and hiking trails leading to rocky cliffs overlooking Little Piney Creek. You will also find plenty of opportunities to spend the afternoon and evening at the University of Missouri - Rolas outdoor recreation center and picnic area. If you remember Fort Leonard Wood, which is about 30-40 minutes outside of roller skates, the hospital is small, but it is one of the largest hospitals in the state.
Rolla is located in the heart of the St. Louis - San Francisco railroad area in Missouri and is home to a number of railroad lines, including the Missouri State Railway, Missouri Pacific Railway and Missouri Central Railway. It is also home to one of America's most famous railroads, the St. Louis and San SF Railways (colloquially known as the Frisco Line).
Italian immigrants first planted vineyards in the Highlands, and nine years later Edmund J. "Buddy" Smith, who is considered the founder of Rolla, settled in the area. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, farmers and ironworkers from the St. Louis - San Francisco area came to work as labourers and workers. In June 1861, the Union troops took over the city and many of the inhabitants of the city leaned towards the Confederacy.
