CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Clinton County's new COVID-19 call center is helping answer general questions about COVID-19 and what to do if you have symptoms.

It was created through a partnership between the county's health Department and the Healthy Communities of Clinton County Coalition.

"The most important thing we have for people is information," said Clinton County Health Officer Stephen Tharp.

According to Tharp, the call center will be able to provide more information to residents.

"We have people who are answering questions at the Health Department, but we need a better organization so that we can talk to more people and get them to know what's going to happen," said Tharp.

The call center will also give updates on the county's status, including current case numbers

"If it comes from a testing clinic that we may in the near future set up, if there is a different declaration from our community leaders, then we can get that out very quickly," said Clinton County Health Department Administrator Rodney Wann.

Wann said the center is being staffed by local nursing and county volunteers.

"I think the fact that they can call in and get a hold of somebody here locally that is giving them the local information is going to be a confidence builder for those are worried right now," said Wann.

Wann said the call center has six lines operating and will expand if needed.
"If the emergency gets worse, then we have that ability to expand seven days a week if we need to," said Wann.

The call center can be reached at 765-652-6501.

It is open from 10-noon and from 4-6pm Monday through Friday.
