Some Covid positive boner coughing on you on a chair lift ride?

I am not going to get on a chair with any strangers. I’m more concerned with standing next to a group of strangers for several minutes each time I’m waiting in the line for the chairlift.

Use your skis and poles to enforce your “social distancing bubble”!

exactly

if you aren't in my social bubble you are going to be a ski pole away and arm length away from me whether you like it or not.

LOL

I wouldn't want to pop that person's bubble!

I love the Flaming Lips!

They used to start their concerts with the singer in one of those bubbles rolling out over the crowd while the band played an escalating in volume Jam.

I like the 3 different color blues for VT that equal the green, yellow and red. And that all 3 blue colors are represented. :roll:

At some point you have to wonder if Vermont just completely shuts down to non-essential out of state travelers.

Yup...5 counties in VT that would qualify for their own travel restrictions and quarantine rules if they were in any other state...

Slimy even by low political standards. Someone paid attention in their psychology of colors unit during Marketing.

Yet there's no intra-state travel restrictions in Vermont. Which makes sense, because, Vermont.

Today’s Vermont map update is not looking good

Lmao. That rural Virginia county probably has population under 2k and travel to neighboring counties is necessary to get to dat dem Wally-mart and de Dolla' Gen'ral where the RONA is sky high but they're safe to come to VT because they're in the lucky zip code.



I think a better way VT could go about this is tracking their hospital capacity. If under x number of ICU beds are available, ban all out-of-staters.

Or just put stronger enforcement and repercussions in place for those who do not follow safety guidelines
