Vermont has not seen the infection rates of neighboring states, and will let stores start to reopen next week.

As we get closer to reopening here in the Capital Region, our neighbors in Vermont are set to start opening retail locations on Monday. According to CBS 6,  retail can operate at 25% capacity and "...must abide by health and safety requirements." Vermont has the third lowest coronavirus growth rate in the United States, so it is understandable that retail is getting the jump on reopening. The CBS report does say the Vermont Governor Phil Scott stressed the need to monitor the status of the virus in surrounding states.

As Governor Cuomo has done, it sounds like Vermont will certainly be monitoring what is happening in surrounding areas in New York and in Massachusetts. The good news is all of these neighboring regions seems to be on the lower end of the infection rate spectrum, and should be following suit and reopening soon. It will certainly be nice to start traveling state to state in the near future, hopefully enjoying some of the fun and recreation our neighboring states have to offer.
