Covid Protocol as of January 12, 2020 from Jorda Daigneault, WCSU COVID-19 Coordinator:

UPDATE- No changes in travel for Vermont residents. There were almost 170 new cases of COVID-19 reported reported on Monday, so we are still deep in the pandemic. The vaccine is going to be given by age (75 and older first) because the data shows this group of Vermont residents are at greatest risk of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19 infection. To be redundant, please do not travel for non-essential purposes, even within Vermont.

* Personal safety

* Medical care

* Care of others (that includes ONLY the person providing the care-NOT other family members)

* Parental shared custody
