Return to Play Guidelines During a Pandemic

(Click on the graphic below for a larger version.)

Current Phase: 4 – Effective May 1, 2021

Click on above graphic for guidelines for Phase 4.

In addition, athletes must meet Phase 2/3/4/5 Essential Eligibility Criteria. Read that here.

Read the Entire Phase 4 Requirements HERE.


The safety and health of EVERYONE is our first priority. We don’t want to keep people from recreating and enjoying adventures on the mountains, but we have to play safe.

Anyone, including participants, staff, interns, family, caregivers, friends, and volunteers, who have high-risk considerations because of underlying health issues or their age should consider not participating in Vermont Adaptive programs.  Choosing to participate is solely at the risk of the individual and not Vermont Adaptive.  If in doubt, we encourage you to stay home and stay safe.


What You Need to Know:

You will need to meet all Vermont State travel guidelines as well as our Phases of Essential Eligibility Requirements in order to participate in our programs. These EECs will change depending on which Phase of programming we are able to offer. Currently, we are in Phase 4.

Vermont State Travel Guidelines/Restrictions – You must meet these requirements in order to participate. Learn more here.

ALL OTHER PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS REMAIN IN EFFECT. Anyone exhibiting symptoms, regardless of immunization status, is excluded from programs and must go home, quarantine, and should be tested.  Anyone using the vaccination/travel exemption MUST have a Federal COVID-19 Vaccination Card ON THEIR PERSON and be prepared to show it.

Vermont Adaptive Mask Requirement  – When at Vermont Adaptive programs and locations, a mask or fabric face covering of two or more layers, and specifically designed to prevent the spread of infection, is required to be worn at all times indoors and when outside when within 10 feet of each other. A neck warmer or neck tube must meet this standard otherwise it does not qualify as a mask or face covering. This requirement has been developed based on CDC and state guidelines.

All programming guidelines and modifications are subject to change at any time. We will only offer programs when it is safe to do so.

Reservations are required and spots are limited.
Please keep in mind that your reservation could change or be cancelled at any time.




*Please note: If you are choosing to participate or returning to our programs after a positive test or other COVID-suspected illness, an athlete, companion/family/care-giver, volunteer, intern, or staff must show proof of:

  • 10 Days since positive test results or first symptoms (whichever is later) and
  • 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving* and
  • Negative Test Result at 10 or more days and
  • A note from Healthcare provider clearing for no-longer isolating and returning to physical activity.
