As of March 2, 2020, there were no reported cases of Coronavirus in Vermont. For additional guidance and the latest information from the CDC and Vermont Department of Health, visit healthvermont.gov/covid19 or dial 2-1-1. The COVID-19 task force includes representatives from Vermont Emergency Management, Vermont Departments of Public Safety, Health, Human Resources, Buildings and General Services, Agencies of Education and Human Services, Vermont National Guard, Vermont Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Coalition, E-911 Board, Governor’s Emergency Preparedness Advisory Council Chair, and Federal Emergency Management Agency. “I want to thank our public health and emergency response teams for the work they’ve done to monitor and respond to this quickly evolving situation over the last several weeks,” said Governor Phil Scott. “As this virus continues to spread globally, ensuring we stay ahead of it with a long-term mitigation plan is an important step in our response process, and I appreciate the expertise and leadership of this interagency group.”

Public Guidance from the Vermont Department of Health. Person-to-person spread of the virus is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Much is still unknown about how the virus spreads. Take these everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs: • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. • Stay home when you are sick. • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. If you have recently traveled to countries where there is transmission (China, Iran, South Korea, Italy or Japan), please contact the Vermont Department of Health (800-464-4343), which will provide guidance on what to look for, and what to do if you develop symptoms that could be from Coronavirus.

There was a break in the water lines on Thursday in the village. Unfortunately, the town office does not know what properties were affected. If you lost water, you’ll need to boil your water until you hear otherwise from the Wallingford Fire District #1. A notice with more information should be dropped off at your home today.

These are the phones numbers to call when you have an issue: 1) the Wallingford Fire District #1 office at 446-2964 during office hours; 2) the Sewer Plant at 446-2325; and 3) Simon Operations Services, who oversees the water and wastewater system in Wallingford, at 802-793-9429 – Chris Hayes. We hope this helps. Thank you.
