Stuck in Vermont: Talking to Essential Workers on the Front Lines 

Episode 611

Most of us have been staying home for more than a month, as ordered by the governor. But essential workers are leaving their houses to keep our state running — whether they are delivering mail or newspapers, taking care of people in the hospital, fixing cars, or stocking shelves at the grocery store. Eva spoke to some of these people about what their lives are like during the pandemic and what messages they have for Vermonters.

Check out John Rovnak’s street photography and blog here, read Astrid Hedbor Lague’s piece about working in a grocery store here and see James Buck’s photos of essential workers here. Look for Seven Days newspapers in neighborhood racks in Chittenden County and follow us on Facebook to find out when/where the papers will be delivered via bike.

Music: Geographer, “Away,” “Lightening Bugs” & “Dreams Electric”

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.

    Workers have begun dismantling the old coal-fired power plant on the Burlington waterfront which closed down in 1986. The long-awaited redevelopment is removing the outer brick layer of the building and retaining the interior steel framework, the centerpiece of a new city park on a waterfront that was once devoted to industry.
