Do you want to know more about COVID-19 but don’t have a specific health concern? There is a new phone line you can call to get your answers.
The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) has launching a dedicated, toll-free phone line for people who have general questions regarding COVID-19.
Please note this is for questions that are not specifically about one’s health.
The line will be staffed 18 hours a day, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Emergency operators will be able to answer questions or point people to information ranging from government services to travel restrictions.
The toll-free number can be reached at 1-855-559-5502.
“We expect this new line to free up room for 811 healthcare professionals to reach more people who may be experiencing medical issues,” SPSA President Marlo Pritchard said in a press release.
If you have symptoms or health concerns, you should phone 811.
