A lot of Vermont's traditional peepers have cancelled their planned trips to Vermont because of COVID-19. Vermont is requiring visitors to self quarantine for 14 days if they are from areas or countries where the virus is still prevalent. Having said that, Vermont has been quite busy of late with vistors from areas of the northeast which are not deemed a threat. Real estate sales are going crazy as people from afar seek to find safer living conditions. There is no enforced travel ban to Vermont since states cannot close their borders to other states. But a ban is in effect for non essential travel from and into Canada. The ban is renewed every month and seems likely to remain in place while the pandemic remains a threat.
All foliage festivals and other organized events have been cancelled
Wear a mask and keep your distance from others. It is part of the Governor's Executive order.
Bring your bike and experience the color from a different perspective, or rent a camper truck while getting some exercise in the fresh air. Vermont has the lowest COVID rate in the country.

As to the foliage...it will occur as it always has, so if you can make it in late September and early October you will see the color. If you are looking for fall festivals, they may not happen. Here is a link to one of the best foliage scenes we have seen in long time - Lake Willoughby in the Fall. This panorama is available as a 14" x 40" framed print or just as a print.
