Gov.Scott address Vermont after Thanksgiving

VERMONT - Governor Phil Scott praised Vermonters Friday after a survey showed that around one in three people planned to dine out with people outside their household which was lower than the national average. Scott also announced an additional three deaths due to COVID since the last press conference, bringing Vermont's total death toll up to 67.

"With the recent news of the vaccine we can see the light," Scott said,  Scott then unveiled the Vermont lights the way plan which encourages businesses and families to light up their homes and businesses during the holiday season.

 

Governor Scott added that in order to stay safe until the vaccine, "Vermonters need to pay attention to the guidelines, socially distance, and avoid all non-essential travel. If you are coming in out of state quarantine for two weeks and if you had thanksgiving quarantine and get tested before going back to school."
