COVID-19 Update

Scott eliminates travel quarantine for some, opens indoor dining

Vermont guidelines on cross-state travel indicate that people traveling from counties in New England and New York where the coronavirus infection rate equals less than 400 cases per million people may travel across state lines in their personal vehicles for leisure travel without quarantining. They must register with Sara Alert to receive reminders about checking for common symptoms of COVID-19.

“Travelers, including Vermonters, that visit or are from a quarantine county must still quarantine for 14-days upon entrance into Vermont or quarantine for at least seven days upon entrance into Vermont and receive a negative COVID-19 test. “–Update 11 – New Work Safe Additions to the Be Smart, Stay Safe Order, June 5, Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development
