News from Emergency Management
COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
Much has changed in the previous three months. Governor Scott terminated the State of Emergency determination for the State of Vermont related to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no longer State mandates regarding gatherings, masking, or cleaning. However some businesses are allowing only those who are vaccinated to enter their establishment. With the rise of the Delta version of the COVID virus, we are being asked to take precautions against infection and wearing a mask in indoor spaces is now a strong recommendation.
In addition, be aware that COVID can be spread by and TO both unvaccinated and vaccinated folks and that the length of time you are in close contact with others who are infected increases the possibility of you becoming infected. So, consider carefully, whether it would be wiser to not attend indoor events like concerts, dances, weddings, educational presentations, and others.
If you are till wondering, "Why wear a mask?" Check out this video demonstration from the National Institute of Health reported by the New England Journal of Medicine. Wearing a mask helps protect you and others in our community from becoming infected with COVID-19.
We seek to provide you with current information to assist you in remaining healthy during this pandemic.
