Legislature to break for at least a week due to Covid-19 - Seven Days

The Senate approved the decision on a voice vote early Friday afternoon, and the House was expected to follow suit later in the day. At a meeting of the Joint Rules Committee on Friday morning, legislative leaders considered taking a longer, two-week break to more closely align with the presumed incubation period of the virus, which has sickened at least two Vermonters and is expected to infect many more. But the eight-member, bipartisan panel opted for the shorter span after agreeing they could easily extend the break if necessary."
