Leahy to out-of-staters: stay away - WCAX

Uh, we love to see, but not now, and that's going to hurt our businesses that rely on it, but we have to do it. I'll try to make up the money to help these small businesses." Wednesday, Vermont's human services secretary said the state needs twice as many beds, ventilators and masks as it has. And those figures were not based on a huge influx of people fleeing to Vermont.”
