Don’t Let Up on COVID-19 Prevention

Do you have summer activities planned? Remember, the new coronavirus hasn’t taken a vacation. You can still have fun while following four rules of thumb: stay home if you’re sick, wash your hands often, physically distance from others and wear a face covering.

Let’s work together to protect the most vulnerable among us and prevent community spread.

Cluster Investigation

The Vermont Department of Health is continuing to investigate and respond to a small cluster of COVID-19 cases in Windham County to prevent further spread of the virus.

Protest Safely and Get Tested

We support Vermonters engaging in peaceful protests and other civic activities to make their voices heard. Please remember that large gatherings do pose a greater risk for virus exposure.

So please follow universal precautions when you are out – wear a face covering or mask if you can when near others, maintain 6-foot distance, and if you're sick, find actions to make yourself heard from home.

We encourage anyone who is participating in a public action to get tested for COVID-19. Find a pop-up test site near you by visiting humanresources.vermont.gov/popups.
