UPDATED INFORMATION: The Greensboro Emergency COVID Response – Please read!

April 3 Update

GREENSBORO/STANNARD EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM

April 3, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

We hope this note finds you safe and well.

Our Greensboro/Stannard Emergency Response Team has been meeting daily since Governor Scott’s Covid-19 Emergency Declaration on Friday, March 13, 2020.  Together we are actively planning and implementing strategies that serve to protect and support our community.

In accordance with State of Vermont orders:

We ask that returning community members shelter in place for two weeks after arrival.  The Greensboro Town Health Officers strongly suggests the use of face masks by everyone.

We will deliver supplies and groceries to you.  Please telephone Smith Store at 533-2631 and/or Willey’s Store at 533-2621 to place your order.  They will coordinate with a volunteer ‘runner’ who will leave your items on the front porches of your homes.  All you need to do is to stay home and to give the store a shopping list.  Or notify one of us to facilitate this important process on your behalf.  Walgreens Pharmacies and Kinney Drugs are both offering free delivery as well.

After the first two weeks of your arrival or retreat, please continue to maintain a social distance and stand six feet apart, congregate virtually, and don’t risk illness to others.  We stand together in our hearts.

Sincerely,

Greensboro/Stannard Emergency Response Team.

On Friday, March 13, 2020, Vermont Governor Phil Scott filed a Covid-19 Emergency Declaration regarding the COVID 19 Corona virus in Vermont.   The Greensboro Emergency Response Team has been meeting daily since then to actively plan and implement strategies that serve to protect and support our community during these extraordinary and, now, unbelievable times.

Effective March 25, 2020 at 5:00 p.m., Vermont Governor Phil Scott issued a “stay home, stay safe” order effective until April 15, 2020.  The Governor’s order directs Vermonters to stay at home, leaving only for essential reasons, critical to health and safety. All businesses and not-for-profit entities not expressly exempted in the order must suspend all in-person business operations. Operations that can be conducted online or by phone, or sales that can be facilitated with curbside pickup or delivery only, can continue.

Please go to the town website for important information about the Greensboro Emergency Response Team and the efforts to protect and support our Greensboro family during this time.   https://www.greensborovt.org/   Please share this information widely. 

In addition, the Greensboro Emergency Response Team is asking current residents of Greensboro (both seasonal and full-time) to complete this Emergency Response Team survey to support efforts to organize our community in response to the novel Coronavirus. Your response and contact information is critical to efforts to develop effective local, community-wide communications systems and preventative responses.   Please share widely.
