Arizona Has New 211 Hotline To Answer Questions About Coronavirus


Governor Doug Ducey has announced the launch of a new statewide COVID-19 Hotline that can be reached by calling 2-1-1.

The  $2-million hotline has been funded by the Arizona Department of Economic Security. It will be administered by 2-1-1 Arizona and the Crisis Response Network and will offer a place to field questions and concerns from Arizona residents about COVID-19.

Among other things, the line will respond to calls in English and Spanish and will provide important information, including: How to prepare for and prevent COVID-19 spread, testing information for COVID-19, what to do when an individual gets sick, and lists websites to find additional information about the new Coronavirus.

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 new hotline is a result of a partnership between 2-1-1 Arizona, the Crisis Response Network, the Governor’s Office, the Arizona Department of Economic Security and the Arizona Department of Health Services.
