Why positive tests are in highly vaccinated condition?

As Vermont reports higher-than-ever COVID-19 cases, state health officials have been trying to understand why.

How can a state that did so well during the early part of the pandemic—and even gained national recognition—do so much worse?

“There isn’t one easy answer,” said Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine at a press conference Tuesday. “But there are clearly factors that have come together to create the situation we are in now.”

Signs and posters that ran out when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in March 2020 will continue to be on display at the Esox bar in Burlington on July 20, 2021.

Slowing the spread is critical right now to prevent Vermont’s hospitals from being overrun with people sick with the virus, Levine said. He encouraged Vermonters to take the same preventive measures that have been preached during the pandemic: wear masks, keep physical distance, stay home when you’re sick, and get vaccinated.

“There isn’t one single solution to stop it,” Levine said. “We have to live with it and take the simple and common sense measures to protect each other as much as possible.”
