Hang in there, fellow Vermonters. We know we’re in the midst of a COVID surge sparked by the omicron variant that saw a record 116 patients in Vermont hospitals on Tuesday, topping the record of 115 patients set on Sunday.
Local institutions and businesses have begun to adjust their policies, schedules and programming to protect public health.
Middlebury College has delayed the start of the upcoming winter term and students’ return to campus. It is also preparing for more COVID-19 cases in the wake of the omicron variant.
