Vermont Adopts CDC Guidance for Isolation and Quarantine 

The Vermont Department of Health (VDH) recently adopted updated COVID-19 guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control including shorter isolation and quarantine periods.

The VDH guidance also recommends an additional layer of protection beyond the CDC guidance, calling for individuals with COVID-19 to stay home for at least five days. Isolation can end on day five if symptoms and fever have not been present for 24 hours and with two negative antigen tests performed at least 24 hours apart, beginning no sooner than day four of the isolation period.

Businesses are strongly encouraged to read the full guidance.

COVID-19 Decision Tree (Update 12.30.21)

To help employers navigate this new guidance the COVID-19 decision tree has been updated to reflect this new guidance and support the mitigation of COVID-19 transmission from close contacts and positive cases in the workplace. 

Find the full ACCD business guidance as it relates to these changes at the COVID-19 Recovery Resource Center.
