NEW Nonresidents Recreating in Vermont (please note: additional guidance is coming soon)
Residents of counties in New England and New York with fewer than 400 active COVID-19 cases per one million residents, (which includes parts of Northeastern New York, Rhode Island, northern New Hampshire, and parts of Maine) are welcome to enter Vermont for recreational purposes without having to quarantine. Residents from a non-quarantine county may travel to Vermont without quarantine restrictions if they travel directly to Vermont in their personal vehicle.
Travelers must register with ‘Sara Alert’ upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19. Travelers must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in their home state upon their return.
Nonresidents from counties with higher than 400 active cases of COVID-19 per one million residents (which includes southern New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, southern Maine and southern New Hampshire) are discouraged from coming to Vermont for any non-essential reason, including outdoor recreation, and they are to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days before resuming their activities, or quarantine for at least seven days and receive a negative COVID-19 test.
