Ebola Virus Hotline Plans Announced; Ebola Screenings Begin at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport
The Illinois Department of Public Health opened a toll-free hotline on Thursday, October 16 to answer the public's questions about the Ebola virus. The hotline number is 1-800-889-3931.
The hotline will be staffed by members of the Illinois Poison Control Center. They will be able to answer standard questions about Ebola, its symptoms, how it is transmitted, and what is being doing to prevent it from coming to Illinois or to contain it if it gets here. The high level of public concern about this virus could lead to significant waiting times on the hotline. The hotline will not practice medicine over the phone and specialized questions about the viral outbreak should be shared with health care professionals.
