Montgomery County COVID-19 Hotline Handling Thousands of Calls

Montgomery County’s COVID-19 Hotline has operated for close to a month and has fielded over 4,000 calls.

Public Health’s Casey Smith says the call center has received questions about symptoms and testing, requests for PPE and social services, and complaints about businesses violating orders.

"This call center was set up so that we could answer all of your questions related to COVID-19, that we can provide you with timely and accurate information, and we will continue to serve you all so long as the need exists," Smith said.

The call center is not able to answer questions about workplace policies. Those concerns should be directed to an employer’s human resources department. The call center also does not provide test results.

The hotline can be reached at 937-225-6217 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
