Re: “Vermont's Coronavirus Case Count Reaches 461

nvrmnd you certainly have the right attitude during this time. There are a lot of patterns online to make masks and people are making masks to donate to health institutions. With communications like 7 Days and front porch communication perhaps people who can make them can provide them to others. My wife has made several batches to donate and I have mailed some to people i work with so they have masks as well.

Re: “Burlington Police to Ticket People Who Violate Stay-At-Home Order

GiGrape espouses the attitude that is creating the need for more laws like this. It is the same as a feeling of entitlement that they can do whatever they want whether it might affect others or not. The stories of the self important college students going on spring break and end up with most infected are the result of this attitude. I had to go get some groceries last week and there were a group of 20 year olds having quite the social event together. There were 7 or 8 of them in watching them touch there faces and mouths and then touch there cart and handle things on the shelves without taking the item really pointed out how selfish they were. They were making plans to go have a picnic later that day. The guidelines are designed to protect everyone

Re: “Health Officials Want Vermonters to Wear Cloth Masks Out in Public

Gi- as was mentioned there are a lot of mask patterns on line now for people to make the cloth masks.
My wife has made some of the folding type that we sent to facility requesting them and made some others that fit better and are more comfortable. Not the greatest way to do so but the non academic skills that used to be taught or handed down can make these times easier.

Re: “City Market and Other Groceries Offer Compensation Pay

So City Market finally joined the other Grocery Stores in the area that are already doing this. How about soem reporting on the others that are already doing so?

Re: “Vermont Faces 'Staggering' State Budget Shortfall

@Doug Hoffer. Facts do matter. The top tax rate is similar but you did not mention the income levels when the tiered rates kick in. In 2012 the top rate kicked in on married couples earning $389000 whereas in 2019 it was around $243000. Seems like the state is taking more in taxes.

Re: “Vermont Senate to Return to Statehouse for Coronavirus Measures

Remote meetings, remote work, but the Legislature cannot conduct business via video conferencing? Why Not?

Re: “Vermont Teachers Union Balks at Scott's Childcare Directive

GrnMtnboy2, perhaps you need to do some research before saying teachers with serious physical issues. Diabetes, heart conditions, kidney problems, transplant recipients are just some of the serious conditions that make these people much more susceptible to dying from this virus. I have been amazed at how much disregard for the safety of others is being displayed, and not wanting to follow the recommended guidelines. Before making these stupid statements, how about thinking of the reasons first, and if you were a transplant recipient and on immune systems suppressants, would you happily walk into a place where you might become infected?
