State Partners With United Way To Launch Coronavirus Infoline

From Governor Lamont:

Governor Ned Lamont today announced that the State of Connecticut is partnering with United Way of Connecticut to launch an information hotline for questions from the public regarding issues related to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). People who have questions can call 2-1-1 or text “CTCOVID” to 898211.

Answers to many of the questions people may have can already be found by visiting the state’s coronavirus information website at People are encouraged to review that website for answers to their questions first before calling the hotline.

This information hotline is only intended to be used by individuals who are not experiencing symptoms but may have general questions related to COVID-19. Anyone experiencing symptoms is strongly urged to contact their medical provider to seek treatment.

“We understand people have specific questions but we want to stress that this call center is only intended for general information. Anyone looking for specific medical advice regarding symptoms they may be experiencing is strongly urged to seek medical treatment,” Governor Lamont said.

The 2-1-1 hotline is available 24 hours a day. Multilingual assistance and TDD/TTY access for those with a hearing impairment is also available.



  1. Don’t worry Jim. I got an email from Coronavirus HQ that said it had no interest in coming to Bridgeport. Lots of other places to visit than the old port.
    If we improve the port and cruise ships start coming into Steal Point they may be come interested but otherwise have no plans to but down roots here.

  2. After all the attempts to get rid of Trump have failed, some say that the coronavirus panic is fueled by the anti-Trump media who understand that a plunging stock market may be the only way to an un-elect him!!
    Therefore Bob, you are definitely right in saying that it’s not coming to Bridgeport as Bridgeport has very few people invested in the stock market and even fewer Trump voters!!!!!
