25. COVID-19 update
From: "Frank, Jennifer" <>
Date: Fri, 14 Aug 2020 22:19:10 +0000

1. Current COVID-19 status in VT:
- Positive COVID-19 Test results: 1,501

2. Gov. Scott extended the State of Emergency through 09/15/20. As part of the executive order, cities and towns will also have the ability to enact some further limits at the local level. Municipalities that choose to do so may lower the limit on the size of gatherings and limit hours for the sale of alcohol, meaning they could set a curfew for bars and clubs.

3. As case rates of COVID-19 infection increase across most of the country, travel exposure is becoming more prevalent, leading to increased risk of virus transmission, especially as students are returning to college campuses.

4. Regional Report:
- The United States, Canada, and Mexico agreed to extend limits on non-essential travel at their shared borders through September 21. The ban, which does not cover trade or travel by air, was first imposed in March and has been extended several times.
- Georgia: At least 289 students and staff from the Cherokee County School District, near Atlanta, were quarantined after multiple students and teachers tested positive for the coronavirus during the first week of school.
- ND, WY, and AL are joining VA in launching contact tracing applications for smart phones.
- CDC reported 5,228,81 (+52,779) COVID-19 U.S. cases and 166,317 (+1,169) domestic fatalities.
- WHO reported 20,730,456 cases and 751,154 deaths worldwide.
