Travelers entering Vermont are permitted to bypass quarantine as long as at least 14 days have passed since they were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Those arriving by plane, train or bus who are not vaccinated must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in the New England state. If they have not had any symptoms of COVID-19, travelers have the option to obtain a PCR test on or after the seventh day of quarantine. They can end their quarantine with a negative test result, but must continue to monitor themselves for symptoms for the full 14 days.

There is an option to quarantine in your own home state before traveling to Vermont. Visitors arriving by car or private plane have the option to quarantine at home and then drive directly there, or else they must quarantine in Vermont after they arrive. They can complete a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative PCR test in their home state and enter Vermont without further travel-related quarantine restrictions.

Travelers who stop en route to Vermont are asked to wear a face mask, stay at least six feet away from people they don't live with, avoid crowded indoor spaces and wash their hands often. Those who have completed quarantine are not permitted to gather with another household in Vermont.

Vermont has suspended all social gatherings between multiple households, and says that travelers may not stay with a Vermont host or in a lodging establishment or short-term rental with another household. A vaccinated individual or household may stay with a single non-vaccinated household, and individuals who live alone may gather with members of their immediate family residing in a different household. Up-to-date information can be found on the Vermont Department of Health's website here.
