Latest town data shows signs of declining case counts

Covid-19 case growth in Bennington County towns slowed this week, and case numbers have declined statewide, according to the latest Department of Health town-by-town data.

Although Bennington and Arlington continued to report a high rate of cases compared to their populations, several other Bennington County towns no longer report high case rates.

The surge in southern Vermont appeared to shift somewhat to Rutland County, which reported high case rates in Pittsford, Fair Haven, West Haven and Benson. 

In central Vermont, Northfield, site of a recent Norwich University outbreak, continued to report a high rate of cases. Hancock also reported a high rate.

Several towns in northwestern Vermont reported high case rates: Franklin, Sheldon, Enosburgh, Montgomery and Richford. In the Northeast Kingdom, Victory, Guildhall and Maidstone reported high case rates. 

Check out the table at the top of this report to see what towns with more than five cases gained the most in the past two weeks, or look at the Department of Health map to better understand how their Covid numbers compare to their population.
