NEW CHANGES – Effective June 8 visitors from designated areas are now allowed to come to Vermont without quarantine if they travel from their location to Vermont in their personal vehicle. If you travel by air or bus or other public means than quarantine is still required. Refer to the map at  https://accd.vermont.gov/covid-19/restart/cross-state-travel . If your county has an infection rate below 400 cases per million of population you are clear to visit without quarantine. Visit this web site for this map and for other travel restrictions if your county / region does not qualify for this relief ….it will be updated weekly.

On June 15th, quarantine policies will change, allowing travelers to either quarantine in their home state if they travel by car to Vermont or to quarantine at the campground (marina fits here too) or lodging property regardless of how they travel to Vermont.  Travelers may complete either: (i) a 14-day quarantine; or (ii) complete a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test – in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions if they drive directly from their home via their personal vehicle. Travelers may complete either: (i) a 14 day quarantine; or (ii) a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test – in a Vermont lodging establishment regardless of destination origin or manner of travel (travelers must stay in their quarantine location for the duration of quarantine other than to travel to and from a test site).
