Current Information for Travelers Arriving in Vermont
March 22 Update
At Governor Phil Scott’s regular weekly press conference on March 16, 2021, the Governor estimated that an expected increase in the supply of vaccine could help return Vermont to “normalcy” this summer. As many in the public health sector have noted, vaccinations, along with ongoing safety practices, are essential to curbing further spread of COVID-19.
This means that travel restrictions into Vermont continue to be in place. The following is current information for travelers, and can be read in more detail at https://www.healthvermont.gov/
Here are current travel guidelines:
- The Health Department advises against non-essential travel, even within Vermont.
- If you are fully vaccinated (and it has been 14 days since your final vaccine dose), you may travel to Vermont without quarantine. Anyone else traveling to Vermont must quarantine. Quarantine means staying at a home or dwelling before doing any activities outside of the home.
- Even if you have recovered from COVID-19 or have gotten a positive antibody test, or you haven’t been fully vaccinated, you must quarantine when you travel or return to Vermont under the current travel guidelines.
- To slow the spread of COVID-19 in Vermont, there are limits on gathering:
- If you are fully vaccinated, and 14 days have passed since your last dose, you may gather, in homes, with other people who are vaccinated.
- Gatherings of vaccinated people may also include one household that is not vaccinated.
- An unvaccinated household may gather with one other unvaccinated household.
- You can gather with multiple unvaccinated households, as long as you are with only one other household at a time.
If you haven’t been fully vaccinated upon arrival in Vermont, you can sign up to get a free COVID test at Day 7 or 10 here: www.healthvermont.gov/covid-
