Vermont Arbovirus Surveillance and Response Plan

The goal of the State of Vermont Arbovirus Surveillance and Response Plan is to protect the public’s health from an outbreak of West Nile virus or Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus. Information gathered from surveillance activities will inform local policy makers about the level of virus activity and the potential threat to human health. This plan allows the state and local government the flexibility to respond to local situations.

This update of the plan includes additional information about responding to EEE virus, which was the cause of human illness for the first time in Vermont in 2012.
