Ozarks Medical Center’s COVID-19 Hotline has been in service for
over a month and has fielded over 1,500 calls. The 24-hour hotline is
available to anyone who has questions about COVID-19. The hotline is answered
by a nurse who can triage the patient over the phone and make an appointment
for them if they need to be seen or tested. The nurses also can answer
general questions about COVID-19 as they relate to guidelines for businesses.
