Harris County and Houston Call Centers for Coronavirus
On March 10th, Harris County Public Health (HCPH), in partnership with Harris Health announced a call center resource for residents in unincorporated Harris County who do not have a healthcare provider and who need access to coronavirus-related care.
Beginning on Tuesday, March 10th, the Ask My Nurse line will provide help with access for symptoms assessments and referral to appropriate levels of care in a clinical setting. Harris County will also staff a call line with public health staff who will be available to answer questions from the general public about coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
