Governor Scott issued new COVID-19 executive orders today for Vermonters. The big news is that everyone must limit attendance at all gatherings to members of their immediate household. This includes staying at home for Thanksgiving, with a tiny loophole for family members living alone.
Effective Saturday November 14, 2020 at 10pm it is ordered that multiple household social gatherings be suspended, restaurant hours and seating limits be tightened, and bars and clubs be closed to in-person service.
It is furthered ordered that restaurants and public accommodations keep contact logs, that the public comply with contact tracing efforts, and that recreational sports programs be suspended.
There’s more: all college students returning home in or out of state must quarantine at home, and all businesses shall reinstitute or reemphasize telecommuting and work from home.
The full text of the executive order is below.
A fall tradition, a home-made pie sale–this time with COVID-safe precautions–will be held on Saturday morning, November 21 from 9-noon in the Guilford Community Church parking lot, just in time to save some preparations before Thanksgiving.
According to organizers, church volunteers will bake apple, raspberry, pecan, pumpkin and specialty pies. Customers will remain in their car and a church volunteer, dressed in COVID-safe mask and gloves, will both come to car windows to take orders and deliver pies and collect payment of cash, check or credit card. To speed your purchase, you may reserve your pie(s) and pay ahead with a credit card by calling Patty Meyers anytime at 802-257-0994.
