Title

Gov. Scott imposes new temporary limitations on social gatherings and business operations.

Description

Gov. Scott "announced a ban on inter-household gatherings, the closure of bars and social clubs and the cancellation of recreational sports leagues as the Covid-19 case count rises in Vermont. The decision follows a spate of new cases: 72 reported on Wednesday, 116 on Thursday (adjusted from 109 by the health department) and 84 on Friday. Hospitalizations have also increased in Vermont to 21 Covid cases. Three people are in intensive care units." --Erin Petenko and Colin Meyn, vtdigger, https://vtdigger.org/2020/11/13/scott-bans-multi-family-gatherings-in-vermont-closes-bars-and-clubs/

Among the new restrictions:
• Multi-household gatherings — indoor or outdoor, in public or private spaces — are prohibited.
• Effective Saturday at 10 p.m., bars and social clubs are closed to in-person service.
• Restaurants can remain open to in-person service, but must cease in-person service at 10 p.m. nightly. Takeout can continue.
• Restaurants, museums, gyms and other establishments must keep logs for contact tracing.
• Vermonters must comply with health department contact tracers.
• Recreational sports will be put on hold, apart from those sanctioned by the Vermont Principals Association.
