The Texas Lineman’s Rodeo Association is continuing to monitor the COVID19 virus, its spread around Texas and the United States and how it is affecting our citizens. We recently had a call with the Board of Directors to discuss the impact that this virus could have on the Texas Lineman’s Rodeo in July. A briefing was held providing current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of Health and Human Services (TxHHS) and then we discussed how we would address the Rodeo and its 2020 Competition. The meeting was very positive and a decision was made to continue to monitor the CDC and TxHHS and to continue our planning of the 24th Annual Texas Lineman’s Rodeo. Our next scheduled Board call will be the last part of April.
The Association asks that all electric utilities continue to use safe hygiene and social distancing practices that have been suggested since this
pandemic was first declared. They are listed below:
The U.S. Government and the State of Texas have been very active in taking every action to limit the spread of the COVID19 virus. They realize that the electric sector is vitally important to the security and vitality of this great nation. The Texas electric utility industry continues to ensure that electrons are generated, transmitted across the 46,500 miles of transmission lines, through thousands of substations and miles of distribution lines to the 26 million citizens that make Texas the greatest state in the nation.
Please pray for all the brave men and women that are actively fighting to find a cure, those that have to treat the infected patients, those who continue to perform the critical jobs to keep this nation running and those that have become victims of the social distancing and lost their jobs. We also ask that everyone offers prayers to God Almighty that He will Bless this great Nation and allow us to overcome this pandemic and come out better and stronger than before on the other side.
May God Bless and keep us safe.
