Welcome to Concord!

The Town Clerk’s office will be closed on Monday, October 8th
in observance of Columbus Day.

                                                                                        

Mosquitoes collected in Concord have tested positive for West Nile virus at the Vermont Department of Health Laboratory. When the virus is transmitted to humans through mosquito bites, most people don’t get sick, but some get symptoms like fever, joint pain, vomiting and diarrhea. The sickness can become quite serious in some people, and those age 50 or older are at the highest risk.

Vermont hasn’t had any reported human cases so far this year. Here are a few tips to help keep it that way:

  • Wear long sleeves and long pants when you’re outside.
  • Use EPA-registered insect repellent.

Get rid of standing water where mosquitoes like to breed.
