Facemasks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others. While a facemask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a facemask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes or certain medical procedures. • Facemasks are cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as medical devices. Facemasks should be used once and then thrown away in the trash.

Respirators are certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), CDC. A commonly used respirator is a filtering facepiece respirator (often referred to as an N95). • To work properly, respirators must be specially fitted for each person who wears one (this is called ‘‘fit-testing’’ and is usually done in a workplace where respirators are used). • OSHA Respiratory Protection eTool: https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/ respiratory/.

ACTION: Notice of availability; Draft Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan in support of incidental take permit application. SUMMARY: San Rafael Cattle Company (Applicant) has applied to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) for an incidental take permit (ITP) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The Applicant has been assigned a permit number TE–12133A– 0. If approved, the ITP would be in force for a period of 30 years, and would authorize incidental take of two species currently listed under the Endangered Species Act (Act), and two species that may become listed under the Act in the future (‘‘covered species’’). The proposed incidental take would occur in Santa Cruz County, Arizona, as a result of impacts on covered species and occupied habitat from specified actions conducted under the authority of the San Rafael Cattle Company. We invite public comment on the permit application and the associated documents. DATES: To ensure consideration, we must receive any comments on or before July 22, 2010. ADDRESSES: Persons wishing to review the application and/or the draft HCP may obtain a copy by written or telephone request to Steve Spangle, Field Supervisor, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office, 2321 West Royal Palm Road, Suite 103, Phoenix, AZ 85021–4951; telephone: 602–242–0210; fax: 602–242–2513. Electronic copies are also available on the Arizona Ecological Service Field Office Web site: https://www.fws.gov/arizonaes.

Data or comments concerning the application and draft HCP should be submitted in writing to the above address or by e-mail at: Cat_Crawford@fws.gov. Please refer to permit number TE–12133A–0 when submitting comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cat Crawford, Arizona Ecological Services Field Office—Tucson Suboffice, 201 N. Bonita Avenue, Suite 141, Tucson, AZ 85745; telephone (520/670–6150; extension 232); or by e-mail (Cat_Crawford@fws.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under NEPA, we announce that we have gathered the information necessary to: (1) Determine the impacts related to the potential issuance of an ITP to the Applicant; and (2) approve the HCP, which provides measures to minimize and mitigate the effects of the proposed incidental take of federally listed species to the maximum extent practicable, pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) If approved, the 30-year ITP would authorize the proposed incidental take of four covered species, including species currently listed under the Act, as well as species that may become listed under the Act in the future: Sonoran tiger salamander (Ambystoma mavortium stebbinsi), Gila chub (Gila intermedia); northern Mexican garter snake (Thamnophis eques megalops) and Huachuca springsnail (Pyrgulopsis thompsoni). The requested ITP also includes two listed plant species: Spiranthes delitescens (Canelo Hills ladies’-tresses) and Lileopsis schaffneriana ssp. recurva (Huachuca water umbel). Although take of listed plant species is not prohibited under the Act, and therefore cannot be authorized under an ITP, plant species may be included on an ITP in recognition of the conservation benefits provided to them under an HCP. The proposed incidental take would occur as a result of ranch management activities occurring under the authority of the Applicant on non-Federal lands within 18,440 acres of the San Rafael Ranch in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. The Applicant has completed a draft HCP as part of the application package, as required by the Act. The application and associated documents provide measures to minimize and mitigate to the maximum extent practicable the effects of the proposed incidental take of covered species and effects to the habitats upon which they depend. Approval of the proposed HCP and issuance of the ITP may be eligible for E:\FR\FM\22JNN1.SGM 22JNN1
