Dial 2-1-1.

The information and referral service number is recommended by Gov. Roy Cooper as the place to call for assistance and resources related to COVID-19.

Operated by the United Way of North Carolina, families and individuals can obtain free and confidential information on health and human service resources within their community 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Locally, United Way of Davie County funds 2-1-1.

“NC 2-1-1 is an important resource every day for families in our commuinity who may experience a crisis such as food insecurity or unemployment. During times like this with the COVID-19 crisis, the needs of all North Carolinians will increase and I am proud 2-1-1 will be here to help,” said Melinda Beauchamp, CEO of United Way of Davie.

2-1-1 cannot provide direct medical services, and COVID-19 can only be diagnosed by a health care professional. If you think you have the virus, contact your medical provider or the local health department.
