COVID-19 | What you need to know...

According to the Vermont Health Department:

 

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and mild illness, you can stay home and treat your symptoms. Not everyone needs to be tested. Testing is not treatment and we have limited ability to test.

Travelers returning from Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, China, Iran and South Korea or from a cruise should stay home and monitor their health for 14 days. Call the Health Department at 802-863-7240 for monitoring information. If you have symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing call your health care provider.
