BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - If you’re fully vaccinated, you no longer have to wear a mask in Burlington retail spaces.

The City Council on Monday voted unanimously to lift the mandate for retail shops and city buildings.

Businesses and workplaces can continue to mandate stricter mask rules if they choose to.

Regardless, unvaccinated people still need to mask up while indoors. And no matter your vaccination status, masks are still required on buses, in airports and on planes. Schools and health care facilities also continue to require face coverings.
