Title

Governor Defends Bans on Gatherings

Description

"Gov. Phil Scott and Health Commissioner Mark Levine defended Vermont’s ban on multi-household gatherings Tuesday after a New York Times article voiced doubts about the policy’s efficacy.

In an article published Monday, Apoorva Mandavilli, who covers Covid-19 for the Times, spoke to public health experts who said the science behind restricting private gatherings over businesses was far from settled.

One called Vermont’s combination of restrictions 'bizarre.' 'Telling people they can’t spend time safely outdoors isn’t a rational approach,' Ashleigh Tuite, an infectious disease modeler at the University of Toronto, told the Times. 'People are going to recognize that and push back.'"
