Getting Through It Together
The Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing is working closely with Governor Phil Scott to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor’s Be Smart, Stay Safe Executive Order remains in effect through June 15, 2020 as the state continues social distancing efforts to slow the spread and keep vital healthcare systems intact.
- Lodging for out-of-state residents is currently limited and quarantine restrictions are in place. Please review the full guidance before booking. Operators may require a copy of a Vermont driver’s license or a signed document from the guest(s) attesting they meet the quarantine requirement.
- Any resident or non-resident, traveling into Vermont for anything other than an essential purpose, must immediately self-quarantine according to the requirements as outlined by the Vermont Department of Health. This quarantine requirement cannot be completed at a commercial lodging establishment, short-term rental, campground or marina.
- Vermont's welcome centers are closed, but portable toilets are available.
