The Vermont Department of Health’s website has the most current COVID-19 information.
Because recent COVID-19 variants are highly transmissible, unvaccinated people are at a much higher risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. This includes children who are under 5 years old. To help protect our community, everyone should follow basic prevention steps:
- Get vaccinated as soon as you are eligible
- Stay home if you feel sick
- Get tested if you have any symptoms, may be a close contact, or have taken part in activities that could put you at risk, such as large gatherings
- Wash your hands regularly
