COVID & MASKS
While its currently not mandatory for face masks to be worn, we need to keep our work force healthy. The HBPA encourages the use of masks in barns or anywhere else where social distancing is not possible. This is especially considerate of participants who need to move from barn to barn. Let’s take care of one another.
