The Vermont Department of Health has provided updated guidance in regards to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
As of March 4, travelers returning from China, Italy, South Korea, Japan, and Iran should stay home for 14 days and practice social distancing.
If your child(ren) returned from those countries in the last 14 days you must inform the principal at the school(s) they attend immediately. You should also call the Health Department at (802) 863-7240.
The Health Department will be in regular contact with travelers for 14 days following their return to monitor symptoms of shortness of breath, cough or fever. No medical certification shall be required during this incubation period and your child will not be penalized for their days absent.
