Ebola and Wisconsin’s Preparedness Efforts
Wisconsin Toll Free Line and Website
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has announced that in addition to the information available on the DHS website, a toll free line is now available for state residents with questions about the Ebola virus. DHS has partnered with 2-1-1 Wisconsin to establish the information line. Residents can call:
1-844-684-1064, 24 hours a day, 7 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.”
