Two COVID-19 hotlines have been set up to answer questions from the public and healthcare providers about testing, symptoms, and many other virus-related topics:
For general information about COVID-19, including news, testing, prevention, and cleaning guidelines, call 2-1-1 from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily. People with questions about their symptoms call 1-844-542-8201, anytime.
Advisory: If someone in your family has tested positive for COVID-19, keep the entire household at home and contact your medical provider.
Why follow the guidelines?
New research from the Centers for Disease Control has indicated that as high as one out of every four (25%) infected individuals actually remain asymptomatic. These individuals can ignore social distancing guidelines and unknowingly continue to spread the virus to others, perhaps to those who are more vulnerable to death from infection, such as the elderly part of the population.
