The Health Department has detected an increase in COVID-19 activity in Rutland County during the last two weeks. What they know is:

Rutland City and some surrounding towns now have evidence of increased rates, multiple household clusters and workplaces with cases.

Surrounding towns with increased rates include Benson, Pittsford, Castleton, West Haven and Fair Haven.

At this time they are seeing an increased number of cases that are not known to be associated with an outbreak, which is an indication of more widespread community transmission.

Take these prevention steps to help slow the spread:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Keep your social circle to only the people you live with.
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart from people you do not live with.
  • Wear a mask any time you are around people you do not live with.
  • If you have gathered with people you don’t live with, you should quarantine, and we encourage you to get tested right away, and then again 7 days after the gathering.
  • If you had close contact with someone with COVID-19, follow quarantine guidelines. Answer the phone if a contact tracer from the Health Department calls you.  
  • Avoid non-essential travel. If you travel out of Vermont, you must quarantine when you return.

Remember that we’re all at risk of getting this virus. Offer to help community members who are affected by isolation and quarantine. We thank you for being understanding and supportive of one another during this time.

In the coming months, Mendon will be engaging in a deep community conversation to set direction for the future. Everyone in town will be invited to come together in a series of virtual forums to brainstorm ideas for action, select top priorities for the future, and build concrete action plans to move priorities forward. The process will be facilitated by the Vermont Council on Rural Development who will provide a facilitated and neutral platform for discussion and will help to connect the community to key state, federal, business, and non-profit technical and financial assistance. This is an opportunity to connect with your neighbors and share your ideas and vision for Mendon – we hope that you will join in this important discussion for our future. 

Community forums will kick off in April 2021 – Keep an eye out for dates and more info.
