The state of Vermont has made 300,000 donated cloth face masks available to all municipalities throughout the state. These masks are available to the public subject to the distribution strategy of each municipality.
The face masks will be distributed directly to municipalities that have requested them. The list of towns and points of contacts are listed on the Vermont Emergency Management website. The list will be updated as more towns request their allotment of masks. South Burlington residents looking to obtain cloth face masks may do so by getting in touch with South Burlington Fire Department Fire Chief/Fire Marshall Terry Francis at firstname.lastname@example.org 802-846-4110.

Governor Phil Scott’’s executive order regarding mask wearing both inside and outside when physical distancing of at least 6 ft. is not possible, went into effect August 1, 2020. Masks will be required for all students and staff in our schools this coming school year. We encourage practicing wearing masks at home as a way to help students adjust to this change. At his July 31 press conference, the Governor announced that thousands of masks will be distributed at sites statewide for community members. We will share information on local pickup sites when it becomes available. In the meantime, check out this resource guide on where to purchase a mask or make your own.
