Health

Practice and promote good, basic hygiene; wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid close contact people who are sick; cover your coughs and sneezes; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; stay home if you are sick; practice social distancing; and continue to check your VLS email at least daily for information.

To stay informed, please visit the CDC and World Health Organization websites, where you will find the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Those impacted by the coronavirus should contact Dean Jefferson, Dean McCormack, or their supervisor. While the risk of coronavirus remains low, we are prepared to respond, following all directions from the CDC, and we will continue to monitor the situation. We will provide further updates as needed.

Please also remember that Vermont Law School has a strict non-discrimination, non-harassment policy. Discrimination toward staff, students or guests based on fears or concerns will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Rather, we hope that everyone at VLS will reach out to anyone in need and move forward together as a community.

We realize that the spread of COVID-19 and the precautionary closing of our physical campus, might bring forth a rush of emotion and mental health concerns – anxiety, depression, isolation/withdrawal, etc. – rest assured that mental health services will still be available.

The Clara Martin Center will still be available to you. You may call 802-728-4466 x 468 to schedule an appointment, either in-person at the Randolph location, or remotely via phone, while campus is closed. The Center is also researching secure technology options that could make video calling possible. Please call the Access Team at the number above to discuss options. Remember, you are allotted 5 free sessions with a Clara Martin Center counselor, per semester, so please take advantage of this important resource if you need to. If you find yourself in need of immediate assistance, please call the 24 hour emergency line at 1-800-639-6360.

Ashley Ziai, Manager of Mental Health Services & Academic Accommodations, is available to assist the VLS community with resources, guidance, or to just listen. We are doing our best to make sure the next couple of weeks go as smoothly as possible. We know it will be stressful, so please don't hesitate to reach out.

No matter where you are, please be sure to limit any unnecessary physical/close proximity contact with others. This means, when possible, stay home. Do not attend large events (or even small ones), make your trip to the grocery store count by purchasing enough rations to last at least a week, try to avoid unnecessary contact with others as much as possible – even if you are healthy and have a promising chance of recovery if you contract this illness, there is serious risk for passing it to others, even if you are not exhibiting symptoms.

The fitness center is open, with restrictions. For details and requirements for access, see the Campus Operations section above.
