Coronavirus and Vermont Humanities

Close up of corona virus

Vermont Humanities believes that public health and safety are top priorities. At this time, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been detected in nearly 100 countries around the globe. At least one case has now been confirmed in Vermont.

Because we partner with dozens of libraries, schools, and community centers around our state to present over 800 events each year, we will work closely with our presenting partners to monitor the situation with COVID-19 in Vermont.

We will keep the Calendar of Events page on our website updated with the latest information from our community partners. We will also post postponements or cancellations on Twitter and Facebook.

Here’s a listing of the events that have been postponed or cancelled due to concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19.)

If there are any events associated with Vermont Humanities programs or grantees that need to be rescheduled due to public health concerns, we are committed to working with our partners in making those arrangements.

Programming partners should feel empowered to make event decisions that meet the needs of their audience and community.  We will ask all partnering organizations to provide updates regarding postponements and cancellations to Vermont Humanities, so we are able to update our records and calendars as well as coordinate scheduling efforts for make-up events. Organizations that postpone or cancel events due to public health concerns will be afforded the same support that was initially provided by Vermont Humanities once the COVID-19 outbreak is stabilized.

We are monitoring the situation carefully and will provide links to information and updates as it becomes available. In the meantime, our partners at the Vermont Department of Libraries are maintaining a Coronavirus Information resource page.

Please contact us if you have any programming questions or feedback; we’re here to help.
