Title

State Sets Record of 1727 Cases

Description

"Months after the Delta variant of Covid-19 hit the state, the more contagious Omicron variant has once again changed Vermont’s definition of normal. In just a week, the state’s seven-day case average has more than doubled, hospitalizations have risen 17% and the seven-day positivity rate has hit 12% — more than double Vermont’s discarded reopening benchmark of 5% — according to state data. The Vermont Department of Health reported 1,727 new Covid-19 cases Tuesday, shattering the one-day case record set just a few days earlier. Eighty-three people are hospitalized with Covid, including 19 in intensive care units."
