Opinion: Stay home, Vermont

Anna Huener, Staff Writer December 7, 2020

It was aggravating to see all this new freedom taken away after only a few months. But aggravation isn’t going to do anything to stop the virus or lower the cases in our small state. The best way to help, in this situation, is to do nothing at all.
