My child had a negative test result; now what?

Please report your test result to the Health Department.

What do I do if my child tests positive?
See information on What to do if you test positive. Please report your test result to the Health Department.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities as Vermont students return to school, we are encouraging you to have each school-age child in your household take two COVID-19 rapid tests.
