In accordance with Vermont’s face covering mandate, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals are required to wear face coverings at UVM in the presence of other people, both indoors and outdoors.  UVM requires all unvaccinated people to adhere to the “two out of three” rule. The three requirements are (1) being outdoors, (2) wearing a face mask and (3) physically distancing. You must adhere to two out of these three requirements at all times while on campus or in a UVM facility or location.

If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, please do not enter the office and perhaps consider scheduling a phone of Microsoft Teams appointment. Our contact information is listed above and we look forward to connecting with you!
