         Current Cross State Travel Guidelines (4/9/21-5/31/21):

         Vermont and Non-Vermont Residents

      • Vermonters must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for the states they plan to visit. Residents of other states visiting Vermont must adhere to the quarantine guidelines:
        • No quarantine required with negative test within 3 days of arrival in or return to the state
        • If you have been vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine or get tested to travel to Vermont or return to Vermont, as long as at least 14 days have passed since you received your final vaccine dose
        • If you have had COVID-19 in the last 3 months in the last 3 months recovered and have no symptoms you can travel to VT without quarantine or testing restriction
        • If you are traveling for essential purposes as defined by the State of Vermont you can travel to VT without quarantine or testing restriction 
        • Read more about quarantining at the Vermont Department of Health website.
    • All out of state travelers utilizing lodging, camping and short-term rental properties in Vermont must sign and complete a Certificate of Compliance or affirm a compliance statement via a digital check box at the time of reservation and check-in to attest that they meet the quarantine requirement or are an essential/authorized worker.
    • All out of state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.

      Essential Travel

      People traveling for essential purposes, including work, do not need to quarantine. Essential travel includes travel for personal safety, medical care, care of others, parental shared custody, for food, beverage or medicine, to attend preK-12 school and college if commuting daily, or to perform work for businesses that are currently allowed to operate. For more information about which businesses may operate and how they may operate, view the Work Safe Guidance. The current State of Emergency requires employers to use remote work and telework whenever possible to avoid unnecessary work travel. Businesses and employees must only travel for work related trips when absolutely necessary. Individuals engaged in a daily commute to and from their job are expressly exempt from the need to quarantine by Executive Order.

      Persons should not travel to, from, or within Vermont if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or if they meet the criteria for needing to Isolate or Quarantine.

Vermont Operators shall require a copy of a drivers license or a signed document from the guest(s) attesting they meet the quarantine requirement, are citizens of Vermont, have traveled from an out-of-state  county with a similar active COVID-19 caseload per ACCD, or are an essential/authorized worker. All guests must also complete a health questionnaire. The Inn will provide you a form prior to your your arrival or at check-in that meets both these criteria.
While not required, Vermont Operators recommend that out-of-state guests register with Sara Alert to get daily reminders via text, email or phone from the Vermont Department of Health.
