Clarification on Guidelines for Yellow or Red COVID-19 Counties

Dear Members,

After continued consultation with the Vermont Department of health, the Upper Valley Aquatic Center has clarification on the guidelines for members from counties with yellow or red travel designations:

Residents of other states who live in a quarantine county or are from any other state outside of the Northeast must follow quarantine guidelines:

  • Visitors from green counties may travel to Vermont with no quarantine, while those from yellow or red counties are subject to travel restrictions. Vermont counties are exempt from travel restrictions.
  • Currently Grafton County and Merrimack, New Hampshire are yellow and red counties
  • Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle, may complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.
  • Enforcement of the quarantine guidelines will be on the honor system
  • If there are any questions on the guidelines please contact Brett Mayfield, the Hartford town health officer 802-299-0183, health@hartford-vt.org
  • FREE testing in White River Junction every Thursday from 9am to 2pm. This is free and open to all, including NH residents. Sometimes walk-ins can be accommodated, but online registration is always best. More information can be found here: COVID Testing

Yours in Health,

Joe Major
Executive Director
