We are deeply grateful for all that you are doing to support Central Vermont Medical Center as we prepare for a potential surge in COVID-19 patients. First, your efforts to follow Governors Scott’s request to “stay at home and stay safe” is critical to flattening the curve of transmission within our community.

Dear Central Vermont Community Members,
