Stay-Home Order Remains Effective As Some Vermont Businesses Resume Work

Vermont Statehouse-Coronavirus

A limited number of Vermonters are returning to work this week but must abide by safety precautions set when Republican Gov. Phil Scott eased some of the restrictions intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Governor Scott reminded Vermonters on Monday of the 55,000 people nationwide, including 46 Vermonters, who have died because of COVID-19 and said his stay-home order remains in effect.   “If we want to allow more businesses to open back up and start to enjoy the things we haven’t been able to do for a while we must stay vigilant. Restarting some businesses doesn’t mean things are back to normal.”

Some manufacturing and trades can open with a maximum of five workers if they practice social distancing and wear face coverings. Outdoor retail can reopen with restrictions.
