Beginning Wednesday (March 18), Knox County residents who think they might have COVID-19, will have a new resource to get answers to their medical questions.
Knox Public Health and Knox Community Hospital are joining forces to open a call-line for local residents to talk directly with a medical professional about their symptoms and concerns. The call-line number is 740-399-8014. The call-line will be activated Wednesday morning and will be operational from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
The call-line will help residents who are symptomatic or concerned they might have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. By talking directly with a medical professional, residents will be assessed and screened for further evaluation, care or consultation, before going to a clinic.
The new call-line is for medical questions only. For other questions regarding COVID-19, residents are requested to call the state hotline at 833-4-ASK-ODH (833-4-275-634). The state hotline is open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
