Shoppers won’t stay away from local stores because they have to wear masks - they’ll shop more often because they will feel safer, Gov. Scott predicted Friday.

I believe that this action that we are taking is proactive and will have the opposite effect.” Vermonters concerned about health risks will have more confidence shopping, he said. Today’s mandate requires universal wearing of masks in all indoor public places, and outdoors where social distancing cannot be practiced, by Aug. 1. There are exceptions, such as while eating, drinking and exercising, and for children under 2 and people with health considerations."
