Vermont Gov. Phil Scott announced Friday that a resident had died of coronavirus earlier in the morning, bringing the state's total to 10 coronavirus-related deaths.

Scott also announced 25 new COVID-19 cases, for a total of 183 in the Green Mountain State.

Testing will now be available to people experiencing mild-to-moderate symptoms of the virus, said Vermont Commissioner of Health Mark Levine.

Vermont's stay-at-home order is in effect amid the coronavirus outbreak, and businesses that remain open are making big changes.

Individuals with these symptoms will still have to contact their primary care provider to schedule testing.

People showing no symptoms will not be tested.

State officials said they hope to have a remote learning plan in place in the near future.

Vermont announced Thursday that its schools would stay closed into summer break.

The state's "stay home, stay safe" order went into effect on Thursday, urging people to cut back on social interactions to slow the spread of the virus.
