Georgia coronavirus concerns: This is the number for state hotline

Study: Georgia COVID-19 pandemic to peak week of April 22

At a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said his office has received calls from concerned residents about businesses not complying with the state’s guidelines on social distancing.

For those with concerns, along with more generic questions related to the virus, Georgians can call the state's coronavirus hotline, which the governor's office announced last month.

The number for the hotline is: 844-442-2681.

The state’s coronavirus hotline can be used for: 

  • Asking about symptoms related to COVID-19
  • Finding out if someone should get tested
  • Reporting possible scams related to coronavirus
  • Alerting the state about non-compliant businesses

The governor’s office also notes on its website that if you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or think you may have been exposed, contact your primary care provider or urgent care.

"Please do not show up unannounced at an emergency room or health care facility," the state notes.
