All Vermonters 50+ Can Make Vaccine Appointments
This Morning, 3/29 at 8:15 am


All adult Vermonters will be eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine by April 19, Gov. Phil Scott announced Friday. Appointments will open on a staggered basis for people in different age groups over the next four weeks. 

Scott laid out the following schedule:
Monday, March 29: 50 and older
Monday, April 5: 40 and older
Monday, April 12: 30 and older
Monday, April 19: 16 and older

To register for a vaccine appointment, visit (preferred) or call 855-722-7878.

You will be asked to provide your name, date of birth, address, email (if available), phone number, and health insurance information (if available, but not required).

Scott said this new schedule would lead to most people who want to be vaccinated getting both doses around June, on track for a return to normalcy by the Fourth of July, more than a “small cookout with friends and family,” he said.

As of Friday, about 30% of Vermonters 16 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine. The state has been ramping up its clinic schedule with National Guard members and new infrastructure for large clinics, said Mike Smith, secretary of the Agency of Human Services.

President Joe Biden has ordered states to open vaccination appointments to all American adults by May 1. By setting this schedule, Vermont appears to be exceeding that target.

Weathersfield Select Board Continues to Have a Problem Publishing Meeting Minutes-Direct Violation of Vermont's Open Meeting Law

The Select Board and Town Manager continue to have a problem posting meeting minutes in accordance with the State's Open Meeting Law. 
(1 of the Vermont Statutes Annotated. Title 1 is the first volume of a set of green law books that includes all the statutory laws of the state. Look for sections 310 through 314 )

At press time, March 29, 2021 at 7 AM ET, the minutes from the March 15, 2021 meeting minutes are STILL NOT POSTED on the Town Website. In addition, the minutes from the March 4 minutes are in WORD.DOC format, a format that many people in town cannot open. The documents should be published in PDF format.

In February 2021, I brought to the attention of the Town Manager Brandon Gulnick that multiple meeting minutes were in WORD.DOC format not PDFs; he assured me it would be taken care of.  Many of the minutes in question were converted to PDFs and for weeks the February 1, 2021 minutes were in fact minutes from the January 26 meeting. They have recently been updated with the correct meeting minutes and in the correct format.

The meeting minutes continue to be published outside of the five calendar day requirement as stated in the Open Meeting Law. The Select Board Chair, Dave Fuller assured me that the minutes are being posted in a timely manner in the Post Offices but the law clearly states that if the town has a website-the minutes must be posted there also.

A few years ago the Select Board had a similar problem with meeting minutes not be posted. After some research I found the following:

What happens if a public body violates the open meeting law? 
The following persons can be found guilty of a misdemeanor and fined up to $500: 
• A person who is a member of a public body and who knowingly and intentionally violates the provisions of the open meeting law. 
• A person who, on behalf or at the behest of a member of a public body, knowingly and intentionally violates the provisions of the open meeting law. 
• A person who knowingly and intentionally participates in the wrongful exclusion of any person or persons from any meeting. 1 V.S.A. § 314(a). 

In addition, the Attorney General and any person aggrieved by a violation of the open meeting law has the right to file suit in court, asking for injunctive relief (requiring the board to stop a specified act or behavior) or a declaratory judgment (a binding determination of the parties’ rights). Under some circumstances, the court may also hold a public body responsible for the other party’s attorney’s fees and litigation costs. 1 V.S.A. § 314(b)(1), (d).

I'm not sure that we as citizens need to take action, as stated in this A Guide to Open Meeting Revised January 2019 page 13 but someone in Town government needs to oversee the publication of the select board meeting minutes, in the correct PDF format, within the five calendar days post meeting date.

Brownsville Optimistic About 4th of July Celebration

File photos from 2015 and 2013

In a press release, the Brownsville Independence Day Celebrations (IDC) Steering Committee wrote that they were feeling cautiously optimistic and encouraged after meeting with the West Windsor Select Board. The IDC Steering Committee made up of Linda Ley, Karen Diop, Bill Ley, Debbie Klene, and Polly Ouelette said this year, 2021 will see a combined celebration on one day, Saturday, July 3rd because the 4th falls on a Sunday. 

They are in the early stages of their planning process and are accepting donations online  or by check made payable to "Brownsville IDC" and mailed to P.O. Box 37, Brownsville, VT 05037.

Outdoor Courtyard Theatre

Opening the Courtyard Theater will be the irreverent romp, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED), June 9-July 4, 2021. Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, and directed by Carol Dunne, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) will feature 37 Shakespeare plays in 97 minutes...outdoors. Three madcap actors in tights weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave audiences helpless with laughter. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare is sponsored by Stave Puzzles, hand-crafted jigsaw puzzles made in Vermont.

The outdoor summer season at the Courtyard Theater will conclude with the roof-raising musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, August 11-September 12, 2021. Million Dollar Quartet takes patrons back in time to December 4, 1956, when icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins gathered for the first and only time at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. That legendary night will
come to life with a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and “Hound Dog.”

The breathtaking pas-de-deux play HEISENBERG, February 16-March 6, 2022, will bring audiences back into the Byrne Theater for the first indoor, fully produced play since March 2020. An electric encounter between two strangers in a train station grows, over six scenes, into a complex and life-changing relationship. Written by Simon Stephens and starring Northern Stage favorite Jamie Horton, the quietly powerful Heisenberg lays bare the beauty in the natural unpredictability of human connection.

Capping off the 2021/22 season at Northern Stage will be the uproarious MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT, April 13-May 15, 2022, in the Byrne Theater. With a book & lyrics by Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle, Monty Python’s Spamalot is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The outrageous and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

All Courtyard seating for the 2021/22 Season will be sold as General Admission, but seating locations will be assigned in advance on the day of performance. 
Early Bird Subscriptions cost $135 (more than 35% off the single-ticket price) and are currently on sale for Northern Stage Director’s Circle, Ensemble Members, and 2019/20 Subscribers only. 

Subscriptions for the general public go on sale March 24th. Single tickets cost $45 in the Courtyard Theater, and $34-$59 in the Byrne Theater. $19 tickets are available for all full-time students regardless of age, with a valid photo ID. 
Single tickets go on sale to the general public on April 1st.

Mud Season Mystery: The Lodger Presented by Northern Stage
April 14-May 2

This spring, Northern Stage will present Mud Season Mystery: The Lodge​r, a witty new adaptation of the classic mystery, created for Zoom and performed live each night.

Closing out Northern Stage’s 2020-21 season, ​Mud Season Mystery: The Lodger​ will be performed live on Zoom starting ​April 14 through May 2, 2021​. The performance schedule is Tuesday (beginning 4/20) and Wednesday at 7:30 PM, Thursday at 2:00 and 7:30 PM, Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday at
2:00 and 7:30 PM, and Sunday at 5 PM.

A lodger arrives at a ramshackle London boarding house as news of a murderer sweeps through town. He fits the description– but is he guilty? And can we trust our instincts? Grab your friends and join Ronnie, an obsessive mystery fan and your host, as Ronnie leads you on a journey through this tantalizing tale and your own expectations. ​The Lodge​r, adapted by Brenda Withers (​Jordan​), uses suspenseful storytelling to engage the audience in a live, interactive, communal experience guaranteed to entertain and provoke.
Tickets for ​The Lodger ​are $29, with a maximum of 40 participants per performance. For tickets, visit, or call the Box Office directly at 802-296-7000.

National COVID-19 Data

Track the Vaccine Doses

Want to track the COVID-19 dose distribution?
Benjamin Renton, a senior at Middlebury College who has been tracking data during the pandemic, has launched a new dashboard using local news reports and press releases to track how many vaccine doses each state is being allocated. 
The feds have cut way back on their initial promises and have no readily available public data effort like it on their own,  Renton updates his dashboard regularly as new information becomes available. Click Here to Track

Tracking the COVID-19 Variants

The CDC has just gone live with a map tracking the known cases in the US of the three emerging coronavirus variants that have the world on edge: B.1.1.7 (the one known as the UK variant); the B.1.351 variant first seen in South Africa; and the P.1 variant first seen in Brazil. At the moment, there are cases of B.1.1.7 in NY, MA, and CT, but none reported so far in VT, NH, or ME. Note that the CDC says their numbers are based on sampling, and so "do not represent the total number" of cases that may be arising.

The State of Vermont has suspended its leisure travel map and implemented a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning or traveling to Vermont.

Vermont and Non-Vermont Residents

Anyone returning or traveling to Vermont must follow Vermont’s mandatory quarantine policy. Vermonters returning from an out-of-state trip must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test.

If you have been vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine to travel to Vermont or return to Vermont, as long as at least 14 days have passed since you received your final vaccine dose.

There are currently limitations on multi-household social gatherings in Vermont. Vaccinated individuals or households may gather with other vaccinated individuals or households. For individuals and households who are not fully vaccinated, social gatherings indoors and outdoors in private spaces are limited to only two unvaccinated households at one time, plus any fully vaccinated households. Visitors traveling to Vermont and staying at a lodging establishment, short-term rental, or with friends and family, must follow these gathering restrictions. Lodging with another household is considered a multi-household social gathering and is subject to the rules outlined above.

Vermonters must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for the states they plan to visit.

Residents of other states must adhere to the quarantine guidelines:
  • Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.
  • Travelers arriving to Vermont who have not completed a pre-arrival quarantine must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test upon arrival in Vermont (such as at a Vermont lodging establishment). (Travelers must stay in their quarantine location for the duration of quarantine other than to travel to and from a test site.)
Read more about quarantining at the Vermont Department of Health website.

Residents of communities within five miles of a Vermont border with a neighboring state should consult the travel FAQ for additional guidance.

All out of state travelers utilizing lodging, camping and short-term rental properties in Vermont must sign and complete a Certificate of Compliance or affirm a compliance statement via a digital check box at the time of reservation and check-in to attest that they meet the quarantine requirement or are an essential/authorized worker.

All out of state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.
