Vermont lifts all covid restrictions

Eighty percent of eligible Vermonters have received a Covid-19 vaccine, clearing the way for the state to reopen, Gov. Phil Scott declared Monday.

The announcement effectively brings an end to the pandemic-related restrictions imposed in March 2020.

Starting immediately, there are no limits on the number of people who can congregate in restaurants, performance spaces or other indoor venues. Previously, gatherings were capped at 300 unvaccinated people, plus any number of vaccinated individuals.

The state’s “universal guidance” remains in effect, which encourages unvaccinated Vermonters to continue wearing their masks and practicing social distancing. Masking had previously been required for those who have not been inoculated. People should continue to practice good hygiene and think carefully before traveling, according to the state’s guidance, though quarantining and testing are not required.

Best news ever! :D

"Vermont reached its full reopening about two weeks ahead of schedule. The governor had initially said he planned for a full reopening on July 4."

Loved his comment, “The people who deserve the most credit are everyday Vermonters,” he said. “You stuck together even when you were physically separated. … The dedication of all Vermonters to their families and communities has been incredible, and you should be very proud. I know I am.”
