The Vermont National Guard will start to dismantle the surge hospital at the Champlain Valley Expo grounds in Essex Junction on Monday.

The facility, staffed by Guard medical personnel, was built in April 2020 as Vermont officials prepared for a surge in COVID-19 cases. The temporary hospital allowed regular clinics and hospitals to focus on COVID-19 patients and others with serious conditions that require hospitalization.

No new case counts were available in Vermont or New Hampshire on Saturday or Sunday. Both states have stopped providing weekend updates. In New York’s North Country, Franklin County reported no new cases.
