Be Smart, Stay Safe Guidance

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 April 15, 2021 as the state continues social distancing efforts to slow the spread and keep vital healthcare systems intact. All out of state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.
