Vermont opens the tourism spigot a little more

Vermont continues its careful relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions for inns, short term rentals, and outdoor dining.

 As of June 8, Vermont inns, hotels and other lodging can book 50% of their rooms for guests or have up to 25 guests and staff on their property. The restrictions don’t apply to stand-alone cabins, cottages and short-term rentals. For restaurants, indoor dining will be allowed but limited to 25% of regular fire safety occupancy limits, or 10 customers and staff, whichever is greater. Bars that have table service will be allowed to open under the same limitatons. Vermont has also lifted its 14-day quarantine requirement for out-of-staters, but only from specific areas or counties in the Northeast with less than 400 cases per million population. People from high-risk areas still must complete the 14-day quarantine when traveling to Vermont, but effective June 15, travelers can do a 7-day quarantine if they test negative for Covid-19, according to the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. The annoucement of this slight easing of the restrictions comes despite a fresh oubreak of 34 new Covid-19 cases in the Burlington area. ... ate-travel

As you can see from the map, the restrictions still don't allow much travel from the major tourism areas.
