The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has created a hotline to respond to health-related questions about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).  The hotline is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1-888-535-6136.

Public health and other experts will answer health-related questions about COVID-19. The team can also direct residents, providers and more to the right resources in their local communities and in other state government departments.

Staff cannot provide individual clinical advice or a diagnosis through the hotline. If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 and are symptomatic, call your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, call the nearest hospital.

Patients with confirmed infection have reported mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:

Fever
Cough
Shortness of breath
Pneumonia

The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19 is to:

Wash hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
Avoid contact with people who are sick.
If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.
Replace handshakes with elbow bumps.
Stay at least six feet away from others when in a public setting.

MidMichigan Health has also published a COVID-19 informational hotline that is a recording with a reminder of CDC guidelines and recommendations for easy access. This hotline can be reached toll-free at (800) 445-7356 or (989) 794-7600 24/7.

The CDC and MDHHS websites are very good reference for questoins.
