TO: Local Media Date: November 4, 2020 

From: Town Manager’s Office 


For Immediate Release: 

Town Clerk Hilary Francis learned that a person who visited the Legion last week has tested positive for COVID-19. Francis advised Town Manager Peter Elwell immediately of this information and also that someone who was at the Legion yesterday had briefly interacted with the visitor last week. Town Manager Elwell reviewed this matter with officials at the Vermont Department of Health. The department informed him that because of the circumstances of the person’s potential exposure, no one who was at the Legion yesterday was at risk, or are being considered a “close contact.” Also, the Legion was deep cleaned last weekend (as it is every weekend) and best practices to prevent the spread of germs were in place throughout yesterday’s voting at that site. 

The Town is sharing this information because of questions we have received and to reassure all poll workers, voters, and the community. Anyone who has any concerns about their health or questions about exposure to COVID-19 should contact their health care provider. You can also find a wide range of information and resources at the Department of Health website
