The Grass Is Greener in the Green Mountain State

Anthony Fauci has endorsed Vermont as “a model for the country” for its robust response and consistently low coronavirus spread.
What sets it apart:

  • Measures like curfews, which mostly benefit those who can stay home and isolate, take a back seat to proactively serving at-risk groups.
  • Free, pop-up testing travels to where it’s needed most.
  • Social service groups liaise with the state to house homeless families in motels.

And Gov. Phil Scott (R), has proposed $1,000 stipends for those asked to self-isolate.
Vermont's lesson for the US: “An equitable program would support people to do the right thing,” says Stefan Baral, an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
