COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Framework Announced

Governor Phil Scott and Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, today detailed the State’s framework for distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine, once one is produced and distributed to the state. The State has submitted responses to a series of questions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), laying out the framework for vaccine distribution and Vermont’s preparedness. The federal government, which is responsible for nationwide distribution of vaccines, still needs to provide details on many logistics surrounding a potential vaccine, and this interim COVID-19 vaccination plan will evolve as new information comes forward.

Mediation Program for Landlords and Tenants

The Vermont Landlord Association has updated its website to ease the application process to its free, online mediation program for landlords and tenants to work through and solve disagreements. Participants will have access to a free professional mediator who will conduct the mediation online.

Restaurant Industry Survey

The Vermont Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Vermont Independent Restaurants, is conducting a short survey to continue to learn about the impacts of COVID-19 on the restaurant industry. Data collected will be used for continued restaurant relief and recovery advocacy work. The survey takes less than 3 minutes to complete.

Business Impact

ACCD wants to hear from all Vermont businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please use the ACCD Business Impact Form to help us continue to assess the full impact as we work toward additional solutions.
