In Vermont, our families, schools, businesses, first responders and countless other groups have made changes to respond to COVID-19. Together our efforts make a difference in our case numbers and in our communities.

As our state continues to confront this once-in-a-century challenge, sometimes it's the little things – those simple, random, everyday acts of kindness and goodwill – that can make all the difference. - Governor Phil Scott
