Gov. Phil Scott is letting "low-contact outdoor businesses" reopen on Thursday, meaning Vermonters can start going to ballfields, parks and golf courses. This follows reports on Tuesday that only five new cases of COVID-19 had been identified in the state.
The addendum to the governor's March stay-home order was released on Wednesday. "Play Smart and Play Safe" allows more outdoors socializing but with the caveat that people continue to maintain a 6-foot distance and gather in groups no greater than 10.
