Finding a Way Through the Piles of COVID19 Information

Information on COVID 19 in Vermont, and maybe your state, may take time to find online especially if you are looking for the original source. I have not found a Vermont website with all the information in one place where I can click to read the full article. For example, closures for public areas have rules such as turning up chairs. Where there is a lot of information to be processed, there's bound to be misunderstandings. Reading the official source is important. I might eventually find the information source I looked for, and I might not.
The chairs issue is beyond dumb. It is difficult to grasp that anyone thinks public seating needs to be removed, blocked, not available for the wonderful Vermonters out for some fresh air.  The very Vermonters, I add, that are a Large part of keeping the COVID 19 curve low. Being compliant seems to be appreciated as long as you don't sit down in public.


  1. I empathize with all the rule makers because they are just now starting to understand this virus. We have a long way to go and they are trying everything. Witty of you to post that photo.

    1. Hi Tabor,
      I hope all is well with your and yours.
      At a time when things are beginning to relax, when folks need to feel that glimmer of hope, something like no public seating is a bummer stunner.

  2. We have the same rule here - no sitting on park benches. People do it anyway but it's not supposed to be safe. I've pretty much given up on trying to keep up with the guidelines because they seem to change every day. It's better to just stay home and avoid the entire thing!

    1. Hi Maryanne,
      Staying home is the best alternative.
      Not being able to sit in public, I feel, goes too far. It has the feel of being bullied. Wipe the bench down first if a person needs to stop to catch their breath. Not everyone is spry enough to not need a rest.
