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.

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers, Jen and Grant, dive into the issue of food waste and pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food for 6 months. Featuring interviews with author, activist, and TED lecturer Tristram Stuart, food waste expert Dana Gunders, and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, JUST EAT IT looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue in a cinematic story that is both deliciously entertaining and truly shocking.
