Record high numbers of COVID cases were reported in Vermont this week and we currently have 17 COVID outbreaks in the state. It’s important that all Vermonters work together to halt the spread of COVID.

Remember! This is not a complete lockdown.

Travel restrictions allow for “essential travel” which includes travel to attend school, if commuting daily, and for work, personal safety, medical care, care of others, parental shared custody, or for food, beverage or medicine.

In addition, nothing in this Addendum prohibits the gathering of members living in the same residence. Individuals who live alone may gather with members of their immediate
family residing in a different household.
