State of Vermont COVID-19 Public Health Response: Housing
Affordable Housing Providers - Guidance
Isolation/Quarantine and Recovery Housing Sites

The State Emergency Operations Center has designed a statewide public health response referred to as Isolation/Quarantine & Recovery (I/R) Housing. I/R Housing is designed for people who test positive for COVID-19 who do not need hospital-level medical attention, but who cannot return to their primary place or location of residence. I/R Housing is not a medical strategy, but a temporary housing strategy in which people receive access to telehealth and social services while they self-isolate and recover from COVID-19.

The Vermont National Guard Essex Alternate Care Facility at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds in Essex Junction, the Rutland Regional Medical Center COVID-19 Mendon Mountain View site in Mendon, and Harbor Place Motel in Shelburne, Vermont are the designated I/R sites for the State Emergency Operations Center statewide housing strategy in Vermont.
