BE SMART, STAY SAFE

Posted: 05/20/20

Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, said at a press conference on Monday (May 18) that although the data continues to show Vermont is doing well in its efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we cannot let our guard down.

As Vermont slowly reopens, physical distancing from others, wearing face coverings and handwashing continue to be essential.  As a cautionary tale, Dr. Levine said that over the weekend, Clinton County, NY registered nine new cases and 27 close contacts - as a result of parties in Plattsburgh.

"Not following guidelines can fuel the virus' spread in a single instance", Dr. Levine said, noting that COVID-19 has by no means disappeared.  Vermont's positive trending data "doesn't give us a pass" when it comes to making these behaviors part of our daily lives.
