COVID-19 Testing Information

Should I Get Tested?

The Vermont Department of Health recommends getting tested if you:

  • have symptoms of COVID-19
  • a person in your workplace or household, or a person you attended an event with, tests positive for COVID-19
  • you plan on going to a social gathering with people you don't live with (other than recreating with one masked person outside). You should get tested before the gathering, right after, and again on day 7
  • were referred by your health care provider for testing for another reason
  • if you often gather socially with people you don't live with, you should get tested weekly

If you believe you have symptoms, please contact your health care provider for testing guidance.

Travel & Quarantine Guidance 

Due to rising COVID-19 case counts across the Northeast, effective on November 10, 2020, the State of Vermont has suspended its leisure travel map and implemented a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning or traveling to Vermont. Visit the Cross-State Travel Information page for more information. Please refer to the Vermont Department of Health's Quarantine Page for the procedures on how to conduct mandated quarantine.

Where to Get Tested in Chittenden County

Coming for a COVID-19 test? Dress for the weather. You may have to wait outside.

Cost: Pop-up testing is provided at no cost. 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 copay. 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. 

Registration Process

  • Register to set up a personalized Vermont Department of Health account
  • Receive an email with your patient ID and use that to confirm your account (check your spam folder if you don't see the email)
