ealth officials reported the first case of coronavirus in Vermont on March 7, 2020 — only 47 days after it was detected in the U.S.
Since then, Vermont has seen multiple waves, and lulls, of the virus. With the widespread availability of a vaccine in the U.S., the worst of the pandemic appears to be over. Cases have dropped precipitously and, on June 14, the state passed an important milestone: more than 80 percent of eligible Vermonters — those ages 12 and older — have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. To celebrate the accomplishment, Gov. Phil Scott lifted all remaining pandemic-era restrictions.
