A message from ECH President Bob Ortmyer

Wishing you a safe and healthy holiday season

The ongoing pandemic is foremost on all of our minds, particularly when it comes to safely celebrating the holidays. The team at the UVM Health Network - Elizabethtown Community Hospital urges you to take precautions in the coming weeks to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community and avoid overburdening an already strained health care system.

When the pandemic first began, our collective actions made a difference. We must once again double down on the precautions we know work.

If you’re sick

Celebrate Safely

  • Keep gatherings small, make celebrations virtual, or head outdoors.
  • Make sure you are up to date on your COVID and flu vaccinations. In advance of gatherings, get tested and mask up.
  • Travel safe and be mindful of hazardous winter weather.
