WHAT HAPPENS WITH A POSITIVE CASE
Steps to Take When Someone Connected to Your Business Tests Positive
If you learn of a positive case at your business, contact the Vermont Department of Health Infectious Disease Epidemiology team. Call 802.863.7240 (Monday through Friday, 7:45 am to 4:30 pm, choose Option 3, and when outside those hours, choose Option 7).
If you are contacted by Department because a risk has been identified at your business, the team will walk you through the next steps.
If you believe your establishment has been exposed to COVID-19, please call the Department at 802.863.7240.
The team will follow up with everyone who tests positive, calculate the period of time when they were contagious, and find out what locations they visited during that time. The team works hard to determine which locations may have been at risk, based on their expertise and knowledge of how the virus spreads.
