COVID-19 safety protocols will be optional Monday in Vermont

COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease in our region. In Vermont on Monday, there will be no more significant state-recommended safety measures. State officials will adopt the CDC’s new COVID-19 risk guidelines. Communities across the state have already started lifting mask mandates, and other cities are expected to follow soon. Noreen Arnold of Aurora Daycare in White River Junction has been handling safety protocols throughout the pandemic. “We followed what the state gave us, they gave us guidelines, how to, you know, keep the place clean,” she said. Gov. Phil Scott wants the children to return to a more normal classroom or daycare now that cases are steadily declining across the state. However, children under 5 are still not eligible to be vaccinated. But some believe that wearing masks poses other problems. “Personally, myself, I don’t want to wear any more,” Arnold said. “I get asked because it gets really hard for kids with speech issues and all that, to see what we’re saying. And it’s not very clear to them. On Monday, the masks will fall for both teachers and students. However, if someone feels symptomatic, they will put the mask back on. Some parents are in favor of the change, but some people in the community still have mixed views on lifting the mandates. “I like the idea of ​​not having to wear a mask sometimes because it feels more free,” said Long River Gallery co-owner Kathy Detzer. “Honestly, I think it’s a small request and we we’re not out of the woods yet, so I’m not sure I’m quite ready for that.” Hartford lifted his mask mandate earlier this week. “I wouldn’t want to run a timed mile with a mask, but in tai chi, it’s not a problem,” said Plainfield, New Hampshire resident John Donaghy. Open Door Studio in White River Junction has a vulnerable customer base and will assess whether they will change their protocols. ” Who knows ? I mean, I don’t think anyone can tell if it’s too soon,” Donaghy said. “Who knows when the next train will arrive or if another stump will arrive.”

Some parents are in favor of the change, but some people in the community still have mixed views on lifting the mandates.

“I like the idea of ​​not having to wear a mask once in a while, because it’s just freer,” said Long River Gallery co-owner Kathy Detzer. “Honestly, I think it’s a small matter and we’re not out of the woods yet, so I’m not sure I’m quite ready for it.”

Hartford lifted its mask mandate earlier this week.
