COVID-19 in Vermont: High Case Counts

Be Smart, Stay Safe

While more Vermonters are being vaccinated, the number of COVID cases in the state is surging. Vermont Health Commissioner, Dr Mark Levine, warns that this is not the time to relax the precautions we have been taking for the last year. According to the Vermont Department of Health, Caledonia County has seen 184 new cases in the last 14 days. The percent positive rate in the state is currently over 2%.

How to Protect Yourself and Others

The basic recommended precautions to keep ourselves safe from COVID-19 have not changed:

  • Stay home if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick
  • Maintain at least 6′ distance from others
  • Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands

Register to get the vaccine as soon as you are eligible. You can learn more about how to protect yourself on the DOH website.
