GSWAM News / Texas Limits Outdoor Gathering...
Last post by Sonny Coleman - July 08, 2020, 08:16:08 PM
Texas limits outdoor gatherings of 10 or more. Fort Worth likely won't grant exemptions.
Link to complete story: https://www.star-telegram.com/news/coronavirus/article244084967.html

This story includes updated comments from the city of Fort Worth.

Planning a pool party, graduation celebration, softball game or wedding?
As coronavirus cases continue to rise, outside events such as these that include more than 10 people now must be approved by local officials, under a "https://open.texas.gov/uploads/files/organization/opentexas/DISASTER-proclamation-amending-GA-28-mass-gatherings-IMAGE-07-02-2020.pdf"proclamation issued by Gov. Greg Abbott that went into effect July 3.
In Tarrant County, city residents must get permission from the mayor and those in the unincorporated part of the county must get permission from the county judge.
Rapier said very few requests for exemptions have been received. There is a potential for exemptions, "but those would be few and far between," she said. Any exceptions would have to include masks and social distancing.
In Arlington, the fire marshal oversees the approval process for these requests. Once someone submits a request, it is reviewed by the fire chief, public health authority and mayor, said Susan Schrock, a spokeswoman for the city.
Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley said his office has created a form that must be submitted 48 hours in advance of the proposed event. The form asks about the event, its time, location and how many people are expected to attend. It also asks what safety precautions will be taken to try to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Less than a dozen requests have been submitted to Tarrant County, and Whitley said he has not denied any of them.
"I've approved events, but I've put certain restrictions in place," he said. "They must try to practice social distancing, must wear masks."

One event he said he might deny would be a pool party with perhaps 20 or 30 people.
"I will have to give some real thought to that," Whitley said. "I haven't seen the ability of people to get into a pool with masks on and be real effective. I would have to give real thought to that."
Not all county officials agree with the governor's decision to limit outdoor gatherings to 10 people unless local officials give permission.

Governor Abbott Establishes Statewide Face Covering Requirement, Issues Proclamation To Limit Gatherings
 
Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household; provided, 
 
however, that this face-covering requirement does not apply to the following: 
1. any person younger than 10 years of age; 
2. any person with a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering; 
3. any person while the person is consuming food or drink, or is seated at a restaurant to eat or drink; 
4. any person while the person is (a) exercising outdoors or engaging in physical activity outdoors, and (b) maintaining a safe distance from other people not in the same household; 
5. any person while the person is driving alone or with passengers who are part of the same household as the driver; 
6. any person obtaining a service that requires temporary removal of the face covering for security surveillance, screening, or a need for specific access to the face, such as while visiting a bank or while obtaining a personalcare service involving the face, but only to the extent necessary for the temporary removal; 
7. any person while the person is in a swimming pool, lake, or similar body of water; 
8. any person who is voting, assisting a voter, serving as a poli watcher, or actively administering an election, but wearing a face covering is strongly encouraged; 
9. any person who is actively providing or obtaining access to religious worship, but wearing a face covering is strongly encouraged; 
10. any person while the person is giving a speech for a broadcast or to an audience; or 
11. any person in a county (a) that meets the requisite criteria promulgated by the the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) regarding minimal cases of COVID-19, and (b) whose county judge has affirmatively opted-out of this face-covering requirement by filing with TDEM the required face-covering attestation form--provided, however, that wearing a face covering is highly recommended, and every county is strongly encouraged to follow these face-covering standards.

Quote from: dlabby on July 01, 2020, 10:54:16 AMYour cowl flaps look exactly like mine. Are you glassing the belly pan onto the wing center section? I see no reason for it to be a separate piece. Covering is looking good.

Yes, Darrell, the old saying applies here "Great minds think alike! Ha!

I didn't glass the pan to the wing but CA'd it. Cut a 1/16 swath out of the covering along the pencil line I drew and then used thick CA and activator to glue it down directly to the balsa. Took some serious hand pressure to keep it in place. I agree, no need to make the pan separate. I'll have to do some masking to paint the belly pan later on, but wanted to get it fitted before painting so I could do any additional work on it if needed. Thanks on the covering compliment. Lane

You have to be sneaky to get a photo posted.

I cut out the cowl flaps today. Not a hard job, just time consuming. Glassed them in place.

Glassed the belly pan in case of gear up landing. You can usually count on at least ONE of those!

hahaha. Sounds like a page out of the novel "1984" giving instructions on from Big Brother on how to walk, talk, eat, breathe, sleep, deficate, and so on. In other words, how to be a good little COMMIE. Don'tcha love it?
