The Health Department recommends testing as soon as possible when: 

  • you have symptoms of COVID-19 
  • you are referred by your health care provider 
  • a person in your workplace or household, or a person you attended an event with, tests positive for COVID-19 
  • you plan on going to a social gathering with people you don't live with (other than recreating with one masked person outside). You should get tested before the gathering, right after, and again 7 days after. 

If you often gather socially with people you don't live with, you should get tested weekly. College students returning to Vermont from out of state should quarantine and be tested on or after day 7 of quarantine after returning home. 

Travelers to Vermont and Vermonters returning from out of state must follow quarantine requirements. You have the option to get a test on or after day 7 of quarantine and end your quarantine early with a negative test result.

For full details on testing and to view other testing locations in Vermont, please visit the Vermont Department of Health COVID-19 testing page.

Testing is provided at no cost. When you register you will be asked for insurance information – but, insurance is not required for testing, and you will not receive a bill or be charged a copay. The Health Department encourages people to provide their insurance information when registering. Because the companies can be reimbursed for their charges, it offsets some costs to the state, allowing the Vermont Department of Health to continue offering widespread testing.
