Other Important Information

The Vermont Department of Health continues to lead the State of Vermont’s response to COVID-19. For the most up-to-date information and Vermont’s response, please consult their COVID-19 website. Schools continue to receive regular updates regarding the state’s coordinated plan in response to COVID-19. 

The CDC has issued new guidance for travelers returning countries with widespread transmission of COVID-19, including China, Iran, Italy and South Korea. Anyone whose last day in one of the affected countries was March 4 or afterward should stay home and monitor their health for 14 days after returning to the United States. The Vermont Department of Health is asking travelers returning from those countries, as well as Japan, to reach out to them by calling (802) 863-7240 for further instructions.

Common disease prevention measures remain the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue. Throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
