Date: Tue, 19 May 2020 00:52:05 +0000

1. Current COVID-19 status in VT:
- Positive COVID-19 Test results 940
- Patients Currently Hospitalized 3
- Hospitalized Under Investigation 19(+8)
- Total People Recovered 815(+5)
- Deaths attributed to COVID-19 54
- Tests administered for COVID-19 23,825
- People being monitored for COVID-19 20
- People who have completed monitoring for COVID-19 860

2. Vt Tests; as of 5/16, the total testing numbers decreased by about 1,000 due to a change in reporting data. The “total tests” number no longer includes serology tests (also known as antibody tests) that were being reported by some labs. The "total test" number now only reflects people who were tested for a current COVID-19 infection.

3. As Vt slowly reopens, physical distancing from others, wearing face coverings and handwashing continue to be essential. Over the weekend, Clinton County, NY registered 9 new cases and 27 close contacts as a result of parties in Plattsburgh.

4. State data and modeling indicates the spread of COVID-19 continues to slow and Vt now has the lowest 3-day and 7-day growth rates in the country.

5. The next meal distribution site will be on 5/19, 10am-2pm at Bromley Mountain, 3984 VT Route 11, Peru, VT.

6. VT Department of Forests, Parks & Rec announced that State Parks will not offer camping at least through 6/25 and will be canceling all reservations prior to that date. Refunds will be issued automatically in the form of a gift certificate.

7. Reminder: With the many life changes that have come with the efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we have seen a tremedous increase in pedestrians, and bicyclists along the roadways. With reduced traffic on the road, motorists can forget to be mindful of their speed and may be less attentive to safety signs and pedestrian warning indicators. Walkers are also reminded to walk on the Left against traffic - that's Right - walk on the Left.... so confusing :) Together we will all get through this stronger. Thank you for looking out for each other along the roadways.
