As the news of containment, prevention, and testing for COVID-19 spreads across the nation, we are looking to our partners to help in planning for Vermont’s communities, and the nonprofits who serve them. We want to recognize the great work of emergency responders, health care providers, home health nurse associations, assisted living centers, and more—immediate responses to the public health emergency in Vermont are already alive and well. And we want to thank so many national, regional, state, and local entities who are already providing resources, services and more!
