Should I Get Tested?

The Vermont Department of Health recommends getting tested if you:

  • have symptoms of COVID-19 (call your healthcare provider FIRST)
  • if you are a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID-19
  • if you take part in activities that could put you at risk (such as attending large social gatherings, being in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings, or traveling)



Canadian Travel Guidance

Starting 4/1/2022, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to provide pre-entry COVID testing at the border into Canada. 


Travel & Quarantine Guidance

On June 14, the State announced the transition into phase four of the Vermont Forward Plan. Travel restrictions have been lifted in Vermont. International travelers may have separate guidelines, please refer to the Department of Health website for guidance. The Federal Transit Administration still requires masks on public transportation until September 13. 

Where to Get Tested in Chittenden County

Cost: Testing offered through the Vermont Department of Health is quick, simple and FREE. When registering, you will be asked for health insurance information – but, it is not a requirement for testing, and you will not receive a bill or be charged a co-pay. The Vermont Department of Health encourages people to provide their insurance information when registering. Because the companies can be reimbursed for their charges, it offsets some costs to the state, allowing them to continue offering widespread testing.
