Will COVID affect the Rodeo?
Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said Monday it's too soon to say for sure whether this year's Rodeo will go on as planned, but show organizers are optimistic.
Of course, last year's show was canceled as COVID-19 continued to run rampant, and the 2020 show was cut short after the first cases of coronavirus were confirmed in the Houston area.
“It’s been tough. There’s no question about it. I think everybody knows that. Certainly, as we move forward and come out of this, I think it just shows how much the show means to the community," President and CEO of Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Chris Boleman said.
The biggest difference this year is the availability of vaccines.
“Compared to where we were two years ago, there are vaccines out there, we know that there are antibodies. There are all kinds of things, masks, to make sure we could do things in a safe way," Boleman said.
As of right now, Boleman said, there are no COVID measures in place.
“At this point, we’re not doing tests or proof of vaccines or anything like that. We’re just watching to see where we are, and we’ll see where we are six weeks from now," Boleman said.
He said they’ll continue to follow state orders and talk to medical experts, but Boleman said he doesn’t expect anything to be canceled.
“I don’t see that coming. We’re planning to have a full show. You’re seeing everything else happening around us. Across the street, you see the Rockets are playing games with fans. I just don’t see that happening," Boleman said.
