Cross State Travel Information

Leisure Travel

The State of Vermont has determined that any county with less than 400 active cases of COVID-19 per one million residents is now eligible for quarantine-free leisure travel. The Agency will update the map below each Friday identifying quarantine and non-quarantine counties throughout the Northeastern United States.

The State hopes more counties will be added over time as their active case counts improve and that the criteria may be expanded beyond 400 cases per million as circumstances allow.

This map is populated with raw data from Johns Hopkins University and uses multiple factors to determine how many active cases are in each county. Read the complete methodology for how active cases per million residents is being calculated. The aggregated data by county is also available.
