Subject: With all the feiseanna on FeisWeb from now through July canceled, we are looking at the Vermont Maple feis in August. Seeing so many Short School dancers registered made me wonder about something. I realize they could be from their one NY location, but it's very common for Short to send a bunch of kids to NE. Are Canadians allowed to come south for a dance competition? I hope they are, but seeing the school listed made me realize I don't know.

[> [> [> [> Subject: Is this the same namby-pamby quarantine "suggestion" that the other NE states have made, or does this one have any actual teeth to it? The MA one is useless, they're just requesting that people quarantine, no penalties for not doing so, unlike say in Ireland.

In VT's phased reopening plan, the update on May 29th includes the following: "Commuter (day trip) traffic to and from Vermont by those who travel daily between Vermont and adjacent states is authorized for essential travel (e.g. essential work, healthcare, groceries) and currently authorized daily work, family visitation, or recreation. Travel to and from Vermont from outside the daily commuting area AND by those who do not travel to and from adjacent states daily is currently restricted and subject to mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Vermont...Leisure travel to Vermont – either for the day or overnight – remains prohibited unless the traveler self-quarantines for 14 days upon arrival." Not sure if a feis would fall under "currently authorized recreation" or "leisure travel", but either way it sounds like unless you can make it a day trip you'd have to quarantine, unless restrictions are relaxed more between now and August

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: Yes, people on the Cape have mixed feelings about that. Many are not happy about an influx of out of staters who may unknowingly bring the virus with them. Until now the Cape has largely been spared. Some of my friends who own cottages have decided not to allow renters this year. Others are going ahead and have hired professional cleaners to sanitize with coronavirus-killing products between renters. Cape residents actually tried a petition to keep NY and NJ people out but it was not successful
