State health officials announced that Vermonters who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 can be tested for the virus at one of the pop-up testing sites around the state.
Eleven sites are currently scheduled to collect specimens from asymptomatic Vermonters, health care workers, first responders (EMS, fire, and law enforcement), child care providers currently serving essential workers, and people returning to Vermont – such as college students, people who winter out of state and second home owners. The sites are led by Health Department teams, with support from EMS units and members of the Vermont National Guard.
