For non-health related questions about COVID-19, residents are encouraged to call the provincial inquiries line at 1-855-559-5502. This line is staffed from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day with operators who will be able to answer questions or direct people to information about government services, travel restrictions, and other general information related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is intended to help free up the 811 Healthline for health specific questions.
