KILLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Following an outbreak of COVID at the Killington Mountain Resort, the Vermont Department of Health opened a public testing site Sunday and Monday for folks in the resort community to get tested.

The Health Department says the community clinic conducted 300 tests Sunday and had 300 scheduled for Monday, with the potential of more community testing opportunities later in the week.
