The Scott administration said Friday that it will release a map on Monday showing the number of coronavirus cases in each town in Vermont. 

Human Services Secretary Mike Smith has said Monday that he would look into the possibility of releasing town-by-town data, as many states have already done. 

Smith said Friday that a town-by-town map and list would be released on the Department of Health’s website on Monday. 

The administration previously said that the small population in some towns raised concerns over inadvertently identifying people who had contracted the virus.
