Governor Phil Scott has said, “Thanks to the work of Vermonters, and even as we’ve slowly restarted the economy over the last several weeks, we’re moving in the right direction. The data shows we can continue to methodically put more back to work, while easing some restrictions.
Over the last month, with strict health and safety protections, we’ve opened retail, outdoor services, recreation, manufacturing and construction, as well as campgrounds and lodging at 25-50% capacity. Vermonters can also safely visit with small groups of family and friends.
We still have a long way to go, but we know what trends and metrics to watch, and if things continue as they have, we’ll be able to do more and more, while keeping people safe.”
Here in Barre, we are working together as a community to follow the state’s guidelines for public health and safety while we begin to reopen our businesses and restart our local economy. Summer is here, and there’s lots we can do in Barre to enjoy the outdoors, take advantage of the warm weather and support Barre businesses while keeping each other safe through social distancing and wearing masks, etc.
We’re in this together, and we will remain Rock Solid as we work into the new normal as a community.
