Travel Map Update

With continued high COVID-19 case counts across the northeast, the Department of Financial Regulation (DFR) has discontinued updates to the Cross State Travel Map. Quarantine remains required for all people returning to or visiting Vermont indefinitely. In its place, DFR has released a new regional heatmap to identify COVID-19 hot spots across the northeast. This new map uses the same methodology as the cross state map and is updated daily instead of weekly. The new map is now available on the ACCD Cross State Travel Information page.

COVID-19 Guidelines Research Study

Researchers at the University of Vermont are conducting a survey to study how Vermonters as well as out of state residents that recently traveled to the state are understanding and responding to Vermont’s COVID-19 guidelines. Complete the online survey and be entered to win one of ten $25 gift cards to a local Vermont business.

ACCD Signage for Businesses

A reminder that ACCD has signage available for businesses and communities to help educate customers and visitors as to the guidance and restrictions in place. New signage has been added to reiterate specifically the need to quarantine for those returning to the state, or for those who are visiting the state. You can find the signage at the ACCD COVID-19 Recovery Resource Center.
