Vermont governor encourages boosters amid COVID surge

Gov. Phil Scott says he wants Vermonters to get vaccinated and get booster shots, as the state sees a surge in COVID cases.

He has not expanded eligibility to all adults in the state.

Scott says he will not re-impose a statewide mask mandate. However, as a compromise, he says the state Legislature can grant local governments the authority to issue temporary indoor mask orders.
