The Vermont Department of Labor expects to have an application online within a week for self-employed, sole proprietors and others eligible for Covid-19-related benefits. The department had to set up a whole new system for the new group. See VTDigger’s story

The Vermont Department of Health released a Covid-19 dashboard on Tuesday that reveals new data on the demographic breakdown of Covid-19 cases in Vermont. The top age group for Covid-19 cases were in the 50- to 59-year-old age range. See VTDigger’s story

The state Department of Corrections is taking emergency measures to help slow the spread of Covid-19 inside the Northwest State Correctional Facility, but is not implementing blanket testing of all the inmates in the facility. That’s because it doesn’t have enough of a supply to test all 200 inmates. See VTDigger’s story

Dentists and their workers are at very high risk for coronavirus and with most dentist offices closed, the few that are open must take extra precautions when treating emergency patients. And they’re barely making it financially. See VTDigger’s story

The state is recommending that the ban on landfilling food scraps, set to go into effect in July, be pushed back to January amid the coronavirus pandemic. It’s also recommending that haulers not have to collect recyclables during the state of emergency. See VTDigger’s story
