Scott announces Covid-19 task force - Seven Days

Vermont’s public health response to the coronavirus will be coordinated by an inter-agency task force, Gov. Scott announced.

"Vermont had no known cases as of Monday but some were reported close to the state. Monday morning, New Hampshire announced its first case of coronavirus, involving an employee of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover — just over the Connecticut River from Vermont. Many Vermonters use the hospital. That hospital employee had recently returned from Italy, whose northern region has been hit by an outbreak. The employee was in isolation at home, exhibiting mild symptoms. A case has also been reported in New York State. Meanwhile, Rice Memorial High School students who returned from a Latin class trip to Italy over school break were being monitored for signs of the virus and have been told not to return to the school before March 9. A faculty member who accompanied the students and returned with symptoms of a cold was also being monitored."
