The Clinton County Health Department in partnership with Healthy Communities of Clinton County Coalition began operating a county-wide call center for residents with general questions concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, the status of county testing, what to do if you have symptoms or are ill, and many other areas of assistance. The Public can call into the call center using (765) 652-6501. Hours of operation are 3 PM- 5 PM, Monday through Friday.

Healthcare providers with general questions on testing/criteria can call the center dialing 765-652-6502.

This center will be staffed by Community Health Staff and county/nursing volunteers and all calls will be taken in the order they are received. Information will be updated daily/weekly as needed and the center may refer callers to additional services when appropriate or available. Bilingual operators will be available.

Note: During hours the call center is not staffed, general questions from the public or healthcare provider inquiries about COVID-19 may also be directed to the ISDH COVID-19 Call Center at the toll-free number 877-826-0011 (available 24/7)
