“We encourage health care workers, first responders, child care providers, and people returning to Vermont – such as college students, people who winter out of state and second home owners – to consider being tested. The sites are led by Health Department teams, with support from EMS units and members of the Vermont National Guard,” the release stated.

All test sites operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Register for an appointment time at humanresources.vermont.gov/popups.

The test will tell you if you have a current infection. It is not a serology/antibody test, which means it will not tell you if you were infected in the past. People with even mild symptoms are encouraged to call their health care provider to get tested. This includes parents of children who have possible symptoms. If you don’t have a health care provider: Dial 2-1-1 to connect with a community or hospital-connected clinic.

Quarantine guidance for people returning to Vermont

If you are returning to Vermont ─ including those who spend winter outside of Vermont, second home owners and college students ─ you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days.

If, during your quarantine, you have not had symptoms of Covid-19: On or after Day 7 you can be tested at one of the pop-up testing sites. If your test is negative, you can end your quarantine period, as long as you continue to have no symptoms.
