Title

Vermont Relaxes Mask Mandate

Description

A day after the Centers for Disease Control advised that Americans who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus that they could stop wearing masks or maintaining social distance in most settings, Governor Phil
Scott relaxed Vermont's masking requirements. The new rules, however, didn’t apply in certain settings, including health care and long-term care facilities, correctional centers, homeless shelters and on public transportation. The new guidelines from the CDC — and the success of Vermont’s vaccination efforts — prompted the governor to change his previously announced timeline for relaxing restrictions in the state.
