To help Vermonters stay up to date on the latest Covid guidance and information, Governor Phil Scott encouraged Vermonters to register for Vermont Alert (VT-ALERT), the state’s emergency notification system.
“As Covid-19 continues to be prevalent in the state, Vermonters need convenient access to the information that will help keep themselves and their neighbors safe, and VT-ALERT is a great way to use existing infrastructure to get it out there,” said Governor Scott. “With vaccines on the horizon, we also want to communicate directly with the public as information on accessing vaccines becomes available.”
Vermonters can register for VT-ALERT by visiting vtalert.gov and selecting the alerts they would like to receive (Covid information is listed under “Health Alerts”). Current subscribers may update their notifications by visiting www.vtalert.gov. Notifications are available via email, text, phone and the Everbridge mobile app. Users may specify geographic areas for which they want to receive alerts (i.e. the town or county where they live or work).
