MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Forty-four Vermont legislators are calling on Gov. Phil Scott to implement a data-driven mask policy. That means a statewide indoor mask policy until numbers are under control.

As of Monday, the state is reporting 238 new cases, with 55 people in the hospital and 18 in the ICU.

They also urge children to remain masked up in school until they get vaccinated and ask for more support for testing and contact tracing.
