New guidance on social gatherings

Sat, 11/07/2020 - 9:42pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott and Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, on Friday announced an advisory on social gatherings, strongly recommending they be limited to 10 or fewer people. Noting that Vermont has seen an increasing number of cases as a result of socializing, and many states are now pointing to private social gatherings as a contributor to spread of COVID-19, the State is providing firm recommendations to limit these types of events.

The Department of Health has also developed a Holiday Travel Toolkit for Schools for use in helping to encourage families to consider their plans carefully to protect one another this holiday season.
