Coronavirus Numbers in Vermont: A Seven Days Tracker, Updated Daily

by

Health officials reported the first case of coronavirus in Vermont on March 7 — only 47 days after it was detected in the U.S. Since then, Vermont's testing capacity has ramped up dramatically, and the number of cases reported has risen daily. This Seven Days tracker will keep you apprised of the rise — and inevitable decline — in known cases.

These figures come with a couple of caveats: Officials continue to emphasize that the state does not have the resources to test every person with symptoms. While the Vermont Department of Health reports each day the number of tests performed and how many were positive, the tally understates the actual number of cases, which is likely much higher.

Because of how infectious the disease is — and how dangerous it can be, particularly for those who are elderly or immunocompromised — officials have directed Vermonters to stay home as much as possible and stay six feet away from others when outside.
