From the Covid Coordinator March 22, 2021
Here is the link for the FAQ regarding border town travel:
Here is the guidance printed out about living near a border town:
A border town is considered a town that is within 5 miles of the Vermont border. Many of Vermont’s border towns are economically and culturally linked to a neighboring state’s border towns. Vermont’s cross state travel guidance allows people to travel between border towns for certain purposes without quarantining. This means that if you are a Vermonter living in a border town or if you live in a border town in a neighboring state, you do not need to quarantine only if:
You travel 5 miles into a neighboring state or into Vermont.
You travel to a neighboring state or to Vermont and back home in the same day.
You travel for an essential purpose or for an activity that is necessary for your physical or mental health. This includes going to worship, going to a gym, getting a haircut, and participating in place-based outdoor recreation. This does not include activities such as social gatherings, dining at a restaurant or bar, or going to an indoor entertainment venue (for example, a movie theater or bowling alley)
Here is the link if you are fully vaccinated:
Here is the guidance printed out if you are fully vaccinated.
I am fully vaccinated. Do I need to quarantine if I travel to or return to Vermont?
If it has been 14 days since you got your final vaccine dose, you do not need to quarantine when you travel to or return to Vermont. Be sure to carry your COVID-19 vaccine card with you and be prepared to show it when asked.
Anyone who is not vaccinated and travels with you will need to quarantine (including children) and follow the cross state travel guidance when they travel to or return to Vermont. For example, if you are a fully vaccinated parent and travel with your children, your children will need to quarantine when they travel to or return to Vermont.
There are gathering restrictions in Vermont. If you are fully vaccinated, then you can gather with one other household at a time. Learn more about Vermont’s gathering restrictions and exceptions.
If you are a health care worker, check with your employer about any additional requirements.
We recommend that everyone, including people who got the COVID-19 vaccine, continue to follow prevention steps to keep from getting or spreading COVID-19. Learn more about how to keep staying safe
