Don’t Let Up on COVID-19 Prevention!

Vermont is strongest when we pull together

At today’s press conference, state officials urged Vermonters to continue to work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“The sun is shining, the weather is hot, and it’s summer vacation season,” said Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. “But the novel coronavirus has failed to take notice of that. It is here and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.”

Dr Levine added: “We must continue to follow four rules of thumb: stay home if you’re sick, wash your hands like crazy, physically distance from others and wear face coverings if you can.”

“I know we can do this,” said Gov. Scott. “The response to this virus (around the country) has become polarized…so let’s set an example. Because Vermont is strongest when we pull together.”
