We're sharing this information from our colleagues at United Way of Connecticut, with whom we share a common mission to improve lives across the state, to help keep you informed about resources available related to the novel coronavirus.
Governor Ned Lamont announced that the State of Connecticut is partnering with United Way of Connecticut to launch an information hotline for questions from the public regarding issues related to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). People who have questions can call 2-1-1 or text "CTCOVID" to 898211.
Answers to many of the questions people may have can already be found by visiting the state's coronavirus information website at ct.gov/coronavirus. People are encouraged to review that website for answers to their questions first before calling the hotline.
This information hotline is only intended to be used by individuals who are not experiencing symptoms but may have general questions related to COVID-19. Anyone experiencing symptoms is strongly urged to contact their medical provider to seek treatment.
2-1-1 and 211ct.org are available 24 hours a day, with multilingual assistance and TDD/TTY access for those with a hearing impairment is also available.
