Dear Central Vermont Community Members,

Central Vermont Medical Center is an important anchor in our region. On any given day, each of our sites actively host patients, visitors, medical specialists, students and residents, community classes, meetings, and important health promotion programs such as the Vermont Foodbank’s VeggieVanGo mobile food pantry.

In the face of COVID-19, CVMC recognizes that all of this activity could present a risk to our patients, our residents at Woodridge, staff, and the community as a whole.
