Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the State of Vermont placed prohibitions and restrictions on visiting nursing homes, residential care homes and assisted living residences. This is because older people are more likely to get seriously ill from the virus.

The Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) puts out updated guidance for long-term care facilities. You can read the latest guidance on the DAIL website.
