in Newport/News/Vermont

NEWPORT — Governor Phil Scott today released the state’s “3-Phased Reopening Plan” for Vermont’s manufacturing, fulfillment, and distribution enterprises.

Scott says the plan is considered “a living document” and will be continuously updated and improved as information and guidance are refined and new best practices emerge.

The governor’s order today states that effective May 4, 2020, the state will allow the following:

a. Small crews of no more than ten (10) persons per location/job, to perform outdoor work and construction work in unoccupied job sites. An unoccupied job site may be a single unit in a commercial or residential structure. “Unoccupied,” may include sites vacated for the duration of the construction work.

b. Manufacturing and distribution operations may resume with a maximum of 10 (ten) employees in any location if they are low-density and ensure employees are at least six feet apart at all times.

c. Supporting operations may continue with the minimum number of employees necessary to support curbside pick-up and delivery services and in accordance with the guidance issued by ACCD.

The governor’s order also states that effective May 11, 2020, manufacturing, construction, and distribution operations may restart with as few employees as necessary to permit full operations while continuing to maintain health and safety.
