Although the recognition for Jordan Chiles was well deserved, I thought parades and large outdoor gatherings were banned due to Covid-19?

The Hazel Dell Parade of Bands has been cancelled two years in a row, the County Fair cancelled two years in a row, Veterans Day parade also cancelled last year with this years unknown at this time cancelled again, Memorial Day commemorations limited as was the Fourth of July celebration.

We are told the massive surge in Covid cases is so severe, that hospitals are overcrowded and people have died from overcrowding as wearing masks in public places was again required the very next day and calls for mandatory vaccinations are increasing.

So, how is it determined which large outdoor gatherings are acceptable and which are super spreaders?
