Vermont Face Coverings Mandate
Effective August 1, 2020, in Vermont, you are required to wear a face covering over your nose and mouth any time you are in a public space, indoors or outdoors, where it is not possible to keep a 6-foot distance from others who are not part of your household.
In accordance with the Vermont Face Covering Mandate, face coverings are to be worn at UVM whenever you are in the presence of other people or in a public setting. Your face covering protects you and those around you from COVID-19.
Face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing, frequent handwashing, and other COVID-19 prevention methods. Face coverings are not respirators and should not be worn for jobs that require respiratory protection.
