Ebola Hotline Activated for General Information



JACKSON, Miss. – The 24-hour Mississippi Ebola Hotline has now been activated through funding from the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH). The hotline is available for general Ebola information and will direct any case-specific calls to health officials when necessary.


The hotline number is 1-877-222-9358.


“While it’s highly unlikely that we will see a case of Ebola here in Mississippi, we continue to work with our healthcare partners to make sure we’re prepared for a possible case, should one occur,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs.


“We realize Ebola is still an issue of great concern to Mississippians, and this hotline should help answer general questions about the disease to those who are interested,” said Dobbs.
