Coronavirus Resources: COVID-19
The Vermont Department of Health, the CDC, and the World Health Organization are all good resources for the most current information. Click here for the latest information about traveling to Vermont or returning from out of state.
NVRH has developed a “Quick Guide” to help our community members understand how to prevent COVID infections, as well as what to do to recover from mild illness, and when to seek emergency care for serious illness. Download the one-page guide here.
Testing for COVID-19: The State of Vermont is setting up testing sites around the state. This is the fastest and most convenient place for asymptomatic (people with no symptoms) to get tested. For locations, dates, times, and information on how to register to be tested click here.

What to expect if you come to the hospital or a medical office: We are operating under the CDC guidelines for healthcare facilities to safely reopen for some services. The guidelines are designed to keep both patients and staff safe. When you come to one of the NVRH medical offices or the hospital for emergency care, diagnostic testing, or a surgical procedure, you will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and will be required to wear a mask. Please bring a mask with you if you have one or one will be given to you.
Before coming to NVRH or one of our medical offices, please read our visitors policy. We know family members and loved ones play a key role in comforting those who are sick, but as we seek to prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are making these temporary changes. Our visitor policy changes often based on the number of active COVID cases in our region and in the surrounding counties and states.
