In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Scott administration has issued further restrictions on businesses and non-essential group gatherings in Vermont. So far, 52 have tested positive for COVID-19 in the state, and two elderly residents have died. This hour, we get an update and ask how Vermont hospitals are preparing for an expected influx of patients.

Our guests are:

  • Tracy Dolan, Vermont’s Deputy Health Commissioner
  • Dr. Joshua White, Chief Medical Officer at Gifford Medical Center in Randoph, Vermont

Update: During the live broadcast, Deputy Health Commissioner Tracy Dolan reported there are now 75 positive cases of COVID-19 in Vermont. She also confirmed three new COVID-19-related fatalities, all at the Burlington Health and Rehab nursing home.

Broadcast live at noon on Monday, Mar. 23, 2020; rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m.
