Governor loosens travel requirements for out-of-state visitors

Southern Vermont Realtors applauded Governor Phil Scott's announcement authorizing interstate travel to and from New England and New York counties with 400 or fewer active COVID-19 cases per million without quarantine requirements.

The new authorization, effective as of Monday, June 8, allows those from certain out-of-state areas to come to Vermont to view properties for sale. A map of the approved counties will be updated weekly and posted on ACCD's website.

Residents who are interested in purchasing a home in Vermont from a non-quarantine county may travel to Vermont without quarantine restrictions if they travel directly to Vermont in their personal vehicle. Permitted activities include overnight travel, commuting for work, leisure visits, and recreation.

Travelers must register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19. Travelers must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in their homes upon return.
