Agency of Commerce and Community Development Secretary Lindsay Kurrle has issued a memo to the Vermont business community outlining steps they can take to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 in the workplace as the winter holidays approach.

In addition, at the direction of Gov. Phil Scott, ACCD has announced a webinar for business owners to be held at 3 p.m., Monday, Dec. 20. Multiple state agencies and officials will be available to further outline guidance and recommended protocols, as well as answer questions from the business community.

Kurrle’s memo “Covid-19 Business Guidance for the Road Ahead” outlines key recommendations for all businesses including:

  • Encouraging employees to get vaccinated and boosted when eligible and to take advantage of free and available testing when needed.
  • Reviewing all workplace safety protocols, related to Covid-19 and beyond, to reduce the need for hospital visits of any kind as a result of workplace incidents.
  • Enhancing Covid-19 mitigation with “Vaccine or Test & Mask” requirements for all employees.
  • Certain public-facing businesses should consider enacting proof of vaccination or negative test policies for customers.
