As the pandemic continues to surge with rising numbers of COVID-19 infections here and around the country, it is so very important – especially during this holiday season – to stay vigilant and continue to do the things that help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask when leaving your house and when you are around others you don’t live with.
  • Keep your distance from others, with a general guideline of staying 6 feet apart.
  • Clean your hands often by washing with soap or using hand sanitizer.
  • Observe local and state guidelines around travel and quarantine.

And please remember:

  • Vaccination is the best weapon we have to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The most important thing you can do right now is to continue to be vigilant and practice behaviors that we know can stop the spread. Encourage your family and friends to do this, too.
  • COVID-19 vaccines are rigorously tested before released for public use.
  • We are vaccinating front-line caregivers first to keep them safe, healthy and available to provide care for those who need it.
  • Stay informed – continue to visit this page, watch for our emails, follow your local UVMHN hospital on social media or check the web pages provided by New York and Vermont state government.
