Wisconsin launches Ebola information line
October 31, 2014
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced that in addition to the information available on the DHS website (www.dhs.wisconsin.gov), a toll free line is now available for state residents with questions about the Ebola virus. Residents can dial 1-844-684-1064, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The calls are free, confidential and multi-lingual.
“Though Ebola has not been diagnosed in Wisconsin, and the chances of getting it remain extremely low, we understand that people are concerned and have questions about the disease,” said Karen McKeown, State Health Officer. “Our website and this new toll free line are helpful resources that provide Wisconsin residents with information about Ebola, and Wisconsin’s preparedness and prevention efforts.”
DHS has partnered with 2-1-1 Wisconsin to establish the information line. For more information about Ebola and Wisconsin’s preparedness efforts, visit: http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/communicable/diseasepages/ebola.htm.
