As part of Vermont's phased reopening plan, there is new travel guidance. Except for international travel, travel no longer requires testing or quarantine.

CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.


Visitors to Vermont

  • If you are fully vaccinated, be sure to carry your COVID-19 vaccine card with you and be prepared to show it when asked.
  • In Vermont, masks are required in public spaces for people who are not vaccinated.

hosting visitors

Under the current gathering guidelines, hosting visitors is considered a social gathering. Both you and your guests must follow Vermont’s gathering restrictions.

Limits on gathering

Vermont has restrictions on social gatherings based on whether you are fully vaccinated or not. You are fully vaccinated 14 days after your final shot. Since children under age 12 cannot get vaccinated at this time, they are considered unvaccinated.

The following limits apply to both social gatherings at a private residence and events at a venue.

For indoor gatherings:
There can be one unvaccinated person per 50 square feet up to 300 unvaccinated people (whichever is less), plus any number of fully vaccinated people. People who are not vaccinated are required to wear a mask in indoor public spaces.

For outdoor gatherings:
There can be 900 unvaccinated people, plus any number of fully vaccinated people.
