People with COVID - 19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported ranging from mild symptoms to severe illnesses. Symptoms may start 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Not everyone infected with the COVID - 19 virus has symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID - 19: fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting Diarrhea This list does not include all possible symptoms. Cdc will continue to update the list of symptoms as more is learn. You can check your symptoms with the CDC's self - checker tool. All Vermonters with even mild symptoms are encouraged to contact their health care provider to get test. Your provider will test you at their officeA or refer you for testing nearby. If you do not have a health care provider, call 2 - 11 to be connected to care, or contact the nearest federally qualified Health Center or one of Vermontas Free & referral clinics. Sometimes you may have symptoms of COVID - 19 but are sick with something else. Talk to your health care provider about your symptoms and whether you should be tested for COVID - 19. You can also check your symptoms on this chart of COVID - 19 Symptoms with CDC's self - checker tool. If you do not have a health care provider, call 2 - 11 to be connected to care, or contact the nearest federally qualified Health Center or one of Vermontas Free & referral clinics. Influenza and COVID - 19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. Covid - 19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. One important difference between COVID - 19 and the flu is that we have a vaccine for the flu! Itas more important than ever to get your flu shot this year, when flu viruses and new coronavirusA may be spreading at the same time. Learn more about the flu and find flu shot. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID - 19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm diagnosis. Flu and COVID - 19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two: COVID - 19 seems to spread more easily than flu and cause more serious illnesses in some people. It can take longer before people show symptoms of COVID - 19, and people can be contagious with the COVID - 19 virus. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the death rate of COVID - 19, but currently, it is thought to be substantially higher than that of most strains of flu. Find more information about differences and similarities between flu and COVID - 19 from the CDC. The best way to keep from getting sick or from spreading from flu viruses and COVID - 19 virus is to: keep a 6 - foot distance from people you do live with.

What you can do

Here are some examples:

Examples of close contactsExamples of not close contacts
You live in the same homeYou were their cashier at the grocery store
You are intimate partnersYou are a pharmacist who gave the person medication
You rode in the same car while the person was infectiousYou were in front of the person in line at the store

Covid - 19 is highly contagious. People with COVID - 19 who don't have any symptoms can spread the virus to other people. There are things we can all do to protect ourselves and people around the US from getting or spreading COVID - 19. Click on prevention measure to find out more. Why - Staying Home keeps Illness from Spreading to others. Rest also helps you get better. How - Cancel Your plans and stay home from work. Let your friends, family or neighbors know you are not feeling well. Ask if they are willing to drop off food, prescriptions or other things you need while you recover. When - Do this any time you have symptoms of COVID - 19 or other illnesses. Why - Washing your hands or using hand sanitizer rinse off or kills any germs you may have on them. This lowers your risk of getting infected with the virus if you touch your face, nose or eyes. If you Are Sick, Washing Your hands lowers the risk of Spreading Your Germs to others by touching share surfaces, such as doorknobs. How - Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol - base hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. When - Any time, but it is especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Also, wash your hands any time they are visibly dirty. Why - Limiting the number of people you are in close contact with lowers your risk of being exposed to COVID - 19. It also helps contain viruses more quickly if someone in your social circle gets sick. Close contact means less than 6 feet apart and not wearing a mask for 15 minutes or more. Keep your social circle small and choose other trusted households that are also taking health and safety precautions. After you invite people into your social circle, have open and honest conversation about what you are doing to stay healthy day - to - day. Focus on what you are comfortable with and why. Try not to judge - Your comfort level and your reasons may be different than others. This is an ongoing conversation since situations may change over time. Other people you are in close contact with. Whether you have traveled recently, or if you plan to be traveling soon. What your work, school, home and recreational settings are like. For example, if you have a job where you are around a lot of other people or if you play team sports. When - Until there is a vaccine and COVID - 19 is no longer a threat to public health. Why - COVID - 19 is mainly spread through respiratory droplets of people infected with the virus. These droplets can land about 6 feet away. Keeping a physical distance of at least 6 feet lowers the risk of these droplets reaching you and others when a person with COVID - 19 coughs, sneezes or talks. It is possible for a person who is infected with COVID - 19 to not know they are infected and to spread the virus.

MEMO

The analytics team has developed dashboards to synthesize key information about impacts of the pandemic, aid local officials in data - drive decision - making, and to help inform residents about our local response efforts. Dashboard is intended to complement important and timely information that is being shared by the State of Vermont, City's Resource and Recovery Center, and other research being conducted by the Analytics Team. Some key data is updated daily, such as charts reflecting COVID - 19 cases as reported by the Vermont Dept. Of Health, while others are updated less frequently as reporting is made available. Most data will be updated daily or weekly as applicable.

The Antigen Test for COVID - 19 identifies people who are currently infected with the COVID - 19 virus. Antigen tests provide results much more quickly than PCR tests. Though antigen tests may be available in Vermont, Health Department only recommends antigen testing in certain circumstances: for people who have symptoms of COVID - 19. So far, studies on antigen tests have only been done on people with symptoms, and we do not have evidence about the accuracy of antigen tests on people without symptoms. Health care providers may use antigen testing when PCR testing is not available or when results are needed quickly. This may be when people who are having symptoms get tested at their doctor's office or when patients are being admitted to hospitals that do have a lot of PCR tests available. Antigen tests may be used to screen people to identify those who need more definitive test. Antigen tests are particularly helpful when used to test people in early stages of infection when the viral load is generally highest. For example, long - term care facilities could screen residents and staff who are not having symptoms, but only if tests were done at least weekly. When used appropriately to test people with COVID - 19 symptoms, antigen tests have a higher chance of missing active infection than PCR Test. This means that if you have symptoms, you may receive negative result but still be infected with COVID - 19. Negative Tests generally require confirmation with PCR Test. We are monitoring how these antigen tests evolve and how results can best be used. Right now, people who test positive from antigen tests are not considered Lab - confirm cases and are not included in our total number of cases. However, we consider these cases presumptive postives and recommend they follow the same guidelines as positive cases to stay home. We would also conduct contact tracing and recommend PCR Test to confirm positive result.


Test Kits

The Vermont Department of Health Lab and University of Vermont Medical Center have partnered to provide COVID - 19 test kits, free of charge, to certain Health Care providers in Vermont. Several types of test kits are offered depending on facilities available to provider. More Information can be found in the following Vermont Health Advisory Network and Guidance documents: update COVID - 19 Testing Guidance and Collection Kit Ordering Information COVID - 19 Diagnostic Anterior Nares Testing: Prioritization and Specimen Collection COVID - 19 Testing Plan: coordinate Public Health and Health Care Response Vermont Department of Health Information: Coronavirus

Update on Positive Antigen Tests report from Manchester Area Health Department so far find no indication of COVID - 19 spreading in the community BURLINGTON, VT - Thirty - five of 63 people with Positive Antigen test for COVID - 19 reported to the Health Department by Manchester Medical Center since July 10 have had PCR test. Of those, 35 33 were negative and 2 were positive by PCR test. The Vermont Department of Health treats all Positive Antigen Tests as presumed Positive cases, and has been reaching out to each person to give public health guidance to isolate, trace their contacts, and recommend confirmatory PCR test. As of July 18, all but 7 of 63 people who had Positive Antigen Tests had been contact. Among those interview, most are not symptomatic, and have not been linked to other possible cases. Although the Health Department investigation is not complete, it appears that the majority of Positive Antigen results have not been confirmed by subsequent PCR testing, said Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. We have not yet found connections that would lead us to believe there is an outbreak of COVID - 19 in Bennington or Windham counties. Pcr testing was offered to the public last week in Manchester and Londonderry. All 405 specimens analyzed by the Health Department Laboratory were negative. This is a good indication that COVID - 19 is not spreading in the community, says Dr. Levine. It does not mean, however, that people should relax their prevention practices: wearing mask, keeping 6 foot distance, frequent handwashing, and staying home when sick.

What types of tests are there?

Type of TestDescriptionProsConsWhere Offered
PCRPolymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests amplify and detect a small piece of the virus DNA to determine whether a person has an active infection.This is the most accurate test.When processed in a lab, results can take up to 96 hours.The hospital, both hospital and state pop-up testing sites, and some clinics
AntigenApproved for emergency use by the FDA for screening larger populations in the effort to identify the rate of active infection, this test detects pieces of coronavirus proteins in an effort to identify active infection.This test offers fast results, within 30 minutes in some cases. It is especially good when there is widespread infection in a community.The test is less accurate than PCR, especially when specimens are taken from those who do not have symptoms.Some clinics
Antibody/SerologyThis blood tests measures whether youve had an immune response to COVID in the past and is not useful for determining current infection.Could indicate past infections and immunity, but it is too early to know for sure.Requires lab blood draw, doesnt measure current infection.Locally, the SVMC Lab

If you feel sick, but your symptoms are relatively mild, get plenty of rest, isolate, and call your health care provider to get a test. Most cases of Coronavirus have been mild and can be treated at home. If you are experiencing more serious symptoms like trouble breathing, or difficulty getting out of bed, call your doctor right away. You may be instructed to come to hospital, receive treatment, and get a test. Use the CDC Self Checker Tool to help review your symptoms. If you test positive or think you might have COVID - 19, it is important to stay home and away from other people. Staying away from others helps stop the spread of COVID - 19.

Please visit Vermont Department of Health COVID - 19 web and data pages healthvermont. Gov / covid19 at his press conference Friday, Governor Phil Scott announced lodging facilities may now rent all their rooms, as long as guests comply with all other requirements. That includes mask - wearing, physical distancing, and travel and quarantine requirements, in addition to limits on dining and gathering size, he say. The governor said that bar seating in restaurants will also be allow, with physical distancing requirements in place. This means food and drink service can be served at the counter. But there needs to be a minimum of 6 feet between parties, and Lexan barrier between customers and staff behind the counter. Officials also announced that the Vermont Travel map will now be updated on Tuesdays instead of Friday. The map displays those counties from which travelers to Vermont may need to quarantine. This will give folks a few more days to see the latest map, and adjust their travel plans to comply, Gov. Scott say. Both Governor and Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD noted Dr. Anthony Faucis's praise for Vermonters ' work to limit the spread of COVID - 19, but also his warning that we should not let our guard down. With the change in seasons and colder weather, we will be moving indoors, and that will have an impact on our cases, Dr. Levine say. Well be living and breathing closer together for longer periods of time. Sharing spaces and germs. Exactly the environment in which COVID - 19 thrives. This makes it imperative that we keep up core prevention practices to avoid illness. Lets keep up the good work, and keep Vermont National model for staying healthy and open that Dr. Fauci says we are, Dr. Levine say. Dr. Levine also noted Friday that September is Public Health Lab Appreciation Month. These incredibly hard - working vermonters put in long hours - many working without day off for weeks or months at time - to process, analyze and report out on test samples taken from, so far, more than 153 000 people in the state, Dr. Levine say. They do this within days, sometimes hours, of receiving samples, through work that is meticulous and must be performed to exacting specifications. So, to everyone associated with our Public Health Lab: you have not just my thanks, but appreciation of every Vermonter whose health and well - being you work to protect around clock, Dr. Levine say. While the rate of virus in Vermont remains low, we continue to see additional cases of COVID - 19. As states carefully reopen, it is an important time to understand stigma, and how it has caused real, tangible harm to people's health and safety. Let's start with a core fact: no single person or group of people is more likely than others to spread COVID - 19. This is key because stigma is associated with lack of knowledge about how COVID - 19 spreads, which fuels fears about disease and death, gossip that spreads rumors and false information, and need to place blame.

Vermont is among minority of states to have a centralized public health system, which in this case may have also helped in its pandemic response, public health experts say. It is consistent message, and consistent application of policies and consistent ways that we can interact with populations at local level, Levine say. For Carney, who served as State's commissioner of Health from 1989 to 2003, that teamwork between government, medical experts and social service organizations in the State has been crucial. When something happens like a pandemic, you don't have to develop them New, you build on relationships that you have, Carney say. There's this foundation of teamwork and concern for health that has served the US well in the past and is one of our absolute strengths right now. Levine says the state has been leaning on those relationships as it works to address disproportionate rates of COVID - 19 cases in Hispanic and African - American populations, including working with community organizations to spread public health messaging.
