Vermont Expands Trusted Traveler Counties

Vermont is expanding it trusted traveler program that allows some people to visit the state without a two week quarantine.
Governor Phil Scott said the goal of the expanded program is to help revive the state's tourism industry.  “Beginning July 1 we will include counties in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, D.C. and Ohio. This does not open up travel for the whole state. It’s a county-by-county threshold. And it doesn’t mean they can fly or take a bus here without quarantine. It’s only if they drive here.”

Vermont is allowing travelers to visit from counties with COVID-19 infection rates of less than 400 active cases per million residents.
