    Masks

    Vermont has adopted the CDC Guidance around masks. Currently, masks are recommended in indoor settings, even if you are fully vaccinated.
    Un-vaccinated people are still asked to wear a mask, until they are 2 weeks out from their second dose of vaccine. Business owners may set their own guidance as to the wearing of masks but indoor masking is recommended. The state Health Commissioner advises keeping a mask on hand to wear in large groups or crowds, or in situations that make one uncomfortable without a mask.
