Vermont will allow people from low-risk counties in other states to visit effective July 1, according to the Vermont Health Department.
The additional states include: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia, the health department announced in a statement.
New York, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Massachusetts were previously included.
Vermont defines low risk as any county with less than 400 active cases of Covid-19 per one million residents, basing their data off Johns Hopkins University.
If not exempt by the low risk guidelines above, Vermont allows individuals outside of New England and New York to quarantine in their home state for 14 days, or seven days followed by a negative test.
Vermont also “strongly encourages” out-of-state travelers to register with Sara Alert when they arrive in state to get two weeks of reminders to check for Covid-19 symptoms.
“All our efforts and day-to day actions have been critical to slowing the virus’ spread,” the state's health department said in a release Tuesday. “But our progress is fragile, and we all have an ongoing responsibility in keeping it from roaring back. Stay home when you’re sick. Wash your hands — a lot. Keep a physical distance of at least 6 feet. Wear a face mask when around others.”
