KEEPING WOODSTOCK AND ALL VERMONTERS SAFE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Concerned about COVID-19 pandemic? Unsure who to call if you have questions? Woodstock’s Emergency Operations Committee has a plan for keeping you and your family safe and informed.   Information is regularly updated from the State and posted here on the Town of Woodstock's website. All posts are approved by David Green, the Town’s Emergency Manager.

 

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vermont State Response & CDC Resources

Visit this website to learn about recent updates on prevention, testing, travel and restarting Vermont from the Vermont Department of Health. Here is a link to the information about Vermont's mandatory face mask requirement, as of August 1, 2020. The website of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also contains a wealth of crucial information.

 

To keep disease from spreading:

- Wear a face mask that covers your nose and mouth.

- Prioritize the protection of those at higher risk for severe illness.

- Continue to limit non-essential travel; all travel should be limited to Vermont to the extent possible and when you do travel, limit non-essential stops. Anyone who leaves Vermont for more than one day for non-essential travel may be required to quarantine at home for 14-days upon their return. (See recent updates on travel and quarantine here.)

- Always stay home and away from others if you are sick with COVID-19, have recently been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, or just don’t feel well.

- Keep a 6-foot distance from others when you meet people outside of your household.

- Frequently wash your hands (hand sanitizer is acceptable when soap and water are not available).

- Cough and sneeze into your elbow (even if you are wearing a facial covering).

- Inter-household socializing. Members of one household may gather – and allow children to play – with members of another trusted household, provided health and safety precautions are followed as much as possible.

Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD suggests Vermonters consider keeping a contact journal – a list of other people who you have been in close contact with each day. If you did get sick, this would make it easier to get in touch with those people and so they can take proper precautions to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

Green Drinks- Climate Week 2020

September 17th at 5:30-6:30 pm

Zoom and Facebook Live

Reserve your Free  spot here

Join us for a fun and informal gathering of "green" individuals to learn more about Climate Week 2020. Jack Cushman of the Sierra Club Upper Valley Group will present on this year's Climate Week events, giving an overview of several of the most interesting virtual events.

About Climate Week: Every September, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting, climate activists and green energy advocates hold public events to help the world move forward. Known as Climate Week, the campaign will occur on line this year (from September 21 to 27) because of the need for social distancing.

Green Drinks happens on the 3rd Thursday of every month to share ideas, socialize with old friend and to meet new friends. Come, and bring a friend and help us grow the social mycelium of the Upper Valley sustainability network. The event is free and welcome to everyone.
