North Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Our community is working towards “flattening the curve” and minimize the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, but many North Texans will still need health and mental health resources during this time.
Texans can dial 2-1-1 (option 6) for information on COVID-19 and local community resources on health care, utilities, food, housing, and more. Due to demand, wait times could be high.
The Department of State Health Services has established a COVID-19 Call Center and set up an email box to receive incoming questions from the general public. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org DSHS COVID-19 Call Center: 877-570- 9779 or 2-1-1
