BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Six University of Vermont students tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday.

In an email from Annie Stevens, the vice provost for student affairs at UVM, we learned the cases came from a combination of undergraduate and graduate students living both on and off-campus.

They say the six students are currently in isolation and that the new cases are unrelated to one case reported on Tuesday that put 30 exposed students in quarantine.

The Vermont Health Department Wednesday reported 27 new cases statewide. Stevens says because of these new cases, this is not the time to let your guard down.
