What You Need To Know

  • WE'RE HERE FOR YOU: If you need care, our emergency departments and urgent, specialty and primary care clinics are ready to care for you. Video visits, telephone visits and, if necessary, in-person visits can be arranged. Contact your doctor by phone or through MyChart to determine the best option for your needs.
  • DON’T DELAY THE CARE YOU NEED. URGENT CARE & EMERGENCY DEPTS ARE OPEN: A small health issue can become a serious one if left untreated. Our urgent care and emergency departments are ready and available to provide care to our communities – no appointment needed. To keep you safe during COVID 19, we require everyone wear masks at all facilities, we screen our patients and we have separate and distinct spaces for treating COVID 19 patients. If you need care, we are here for you.
  • MASKS AT ALL FACILITIES: To better protect you, our community and staff from the spread of COVID-19, all employees in our facilities across the UVM Health Network are now wearing masks while they work. Because COVID-19 can spread before a person has symptoms, wearing masks may help protect the people around us if we are infected and don’t know it. Learn about our masking policy.
  • KEEP YOUR DISTANCE, WASH YOUR HANDS: If you don’t need medical care, stay home and practice social distancing of at least 6 feet from others to help protect our community and reduce the burden on health care providers. And don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to further protect yourself and others. Learn more.
  • IF YOU ARE WORRIED YOU HAVE COVID-19: Feeling sick or have mild symptoms? Please contact your doctor by phone or through MyChart. You can also use the CDC's Coronavirus Self-Checker to review your symptoms.
