PHOENIX⁠ — On Sunday, Governor Doug Ducey announced the launch of a new statewide COVID-19 Hotline administered by 2-1-1 Arizona and the Crisis Response Network. The hotline will serve as “an entry point” to field questions and concerns from Arizona residents about COVID-19.

The $2 million allocated to the hotline comes from the Arizona Department of Economic Security.

The line will operate from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day of the week and can be reached by dialing 2-1-1 while an individual is located in Arizona.

The line will respond to calls in English and Spanish and will provide information, including:

● How to prepare for and prevent COVID-19 spread

● Testing information for COVID-19

● What populations are at higher risk from the COVID-19

● What to do if an individual gets sick

●COVID-19 and animals

“As we continue to combat COVID-19 in Arizona, we want to ensure the public has access to resources needed to stay safe and healthy,” said Ducey in a press release. “With this hotline launch, Arizonans can get important COVID-19 related information in English and Spanish by simply dialing 2-1-1. We will continue to work closely with our partners throughout the state to ensure Arizonans can easily reach important information and stay healthy. My sincere thanks to 2-1-1 Arizona, the Crisis Response Network and everyone working to share life-saving information and prevent the spread of this outbreak.”
