MARSHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — Restaurants may open to outside dining in Vermont with restrictions as state officials announced more reopenings after coronavirus-related shutdowns, including many health care services.

Gov. Phil Scott said Friday that churches may open to 25 percent of capacity starting Saturday and that barbers and hair salons will be permitted to reopen May 29.


Scott says he expects to have a time frame for gyms and spas in a week. But he says traditional fairs and festivals are canceled for the season. Vermont continues to have the second slowest doubling rate of virus cases in the country after Hawaii.
