Coronavirus Update as of March 20, 2020
Green Up Vermont has been closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) communications and guidance from the Vermont Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and daily news from Governor Scott and our federal government. The situation is fluid and our greatest priority is the health and well-being of our Green Up family of volunteers and event participants.
Effective March 20th, Green Up Vermont’s plan is to forge ahead with Green Up Day on Saturday, May 2 pending final guidance from the CDC, Vermont Department of Health and Vermont Emergency Management directives.
Green Up Day is by nature an activity of social distancing as citizens of all ages get outside to clean up miles of Vermont roads. Supply pick up and trash drop off locations specific to towns can be managed with little to no close contact in keeping with CDC guidelines.
Some town celebrations may need to be modified by those who organize them as they see fit for their area, the number of participants, and the size of the gatherings planned. Specific town coordinator details can be found on our website at greenupvermont.org.
Green Up Day is a well-loved event that will bring some normalcy to our communities and will help contribute to the physical, social and mental health of Vermonters as much as their Green Up activities will help beautify our state and strengthen our commitment to healthy environments.
We will proceed with caution and keep people informed should things need to change in any way. For updates check our website, www.greenupvermont.org and social media channels @Green Up Vermont. We look forward to Greening Up safely on May 2!
