Thanks to the work of Vermonters, and even as we’ve slowly restarted the economy over the last 4 weeks, we’re still moving in the right direction. The data shows we can continue to methodically put more back to work, while easing some restrictions.

Over the last month, with strict health and safety protections, we’ve opened retail, outdoor services, recreation, manufacturing and construction, as well as campgrounds and lodging at 25% capacity. Vermonters can also safely visit with small groups of family and friends.

We still have a long way to go, but we know what trends and metrics to watch, and if things continue as they have, we’ll be able to do more and more, while keeping people safe.

As I said on Friday, if things go well this week, we’ll announce some additional openings, like more office workers who can’t work from home, hair salons, limited outdoor seating at restaurants, and hopefully more in the healthcare field.

I know this has been incredibly difficult for everyone, and in some ways, the restart process is even more trying than the closings were. But your sacrifices and cooperation have made a huge difference. And my team is committed to helping our businesses and families recover from this once-in-a-century crisis.

So, on Wednesday we’ll also announce a major package which will provide relief, hope, and initiatives to get us moving towards recovery. Thank you all for what you’ve done over the last 2 months and your ongoing commitment to keeping people safe.

Vermont has the lowest COVID-19 growth rate in the country, thanks to the efforts of Vermonters. As we methodically reopen our economy, it’s important we remain vigilant and continue to follow Vermont Department of Health and CDC guidelines.

FREE BOOK ON HEALTH AND WELLNESS (Please Share) In a review in The Wanderer, a weekly religious newspaper, reporter Michael Hull has referred to The Quest:Maximizing Health and Wellness Through Spiritual Healing as a small but powerful book providing a crystal-clear guide to the limitless scope of prayer and the potential of healing energy as manifested through prayer. The text aims to familiarize readers with the benefits of spiritual healing as well as promote a greater awareness of the influence that beliefs and behavior play in achieving health and wellness, especially as we cope with an unknown future at this difficult time of global crises. The book published in 1985 has been updated. Besides editing, an array of colored photos are included in the new edition for the reader’s pleasure and inspiration. Though a small book (45 pages), it is chockfull of useful information which can help one achieve a resiliency to life’s unpredictable foibles and catastrophes. The Quest is offered free to the public with compliments from Raphael Ferraro and the Italian American Press in collaboration with Rich DiSilvio, La Gazzetta Italiana, and the Italian Historical Society of America. To obtain a free download of the upgraded version of the original text, visit www.italianamericanpress.com . The author of this informative book is Ralph (Raphael) Ferraro. His background includes teaching in high school and college, health coordinator, stress management professional, and founder of The Italian American Press. He is also the author of several books, the most recent Royanna: An Extraterrestrial Affair, a science fiction novella blending adventure, mystery, and religion.

Seeking information: I am a genealogical sleuth. I have a "client" who is seeking information about her sister, whom she did not even know existed until recently. That sister's fate and whereabouts are unknown. Barbara Hewett was born at Mayo Hospital to Ralph and Doris Hewett of Northfield on April 5, 1938. Doris was the former Doris Freda Berno, dau of Fred and Emma Berno. Though married, Ralph is living with his parents when the 1940 census is taken. The couple at some point resumed living together. The whereabouts of Doris in 1940 are unknown. We have reason to think that Barbara was alive in 1942 when her sister, Caroline, was born. However, when a brother is born in 1949, Doris reports that one of the children to whom she gave birth is dead. The child now "dead" could only be Barbara. But, there are rumors around the town of Northfield that Doris gave Barbara away or that Barbara was adopted. If Barbara were adopted, it was not through the State of Vermont as there is no such adoption registered. If she is dead, there is no register of her death in Northfield. The rumor was that she was adopted by a family in Lyndonville, but an effort to verify that or find any trace of Barbara in the Northeast Kingdom has not produced any leads. Might anyone have any information about Barbara's fate?
