As of June 14, 2021, more than 80% of eligible Vermonters have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and Governor Phil Scott has authorized the move to Step 4 of the Vermont Forward Plan, lifting business, gathering, and travel related restrictions, nearly two weeks ahead of schedule.
Also note that the temporary measures enacted by the Vermont Legislature and tied to the declared emergency will have expired. Among them are Acts 92 and 113 of 2020, which had temporarily amended the open meeting law (OML) to allow for fully remote public meetings and electronic posting of notices. As of this update, public bodies must now comply with the long-standing OML as it appears in 1 V.S.A. §§ 310-314. This includes providing a staffed physical location where members of the public may attend and participate in public meetings.The Secretary of State's office has issued this memo to local officials to help with the transition.
