The City of Medicine Hat is launching an information line for local residents today.

It’s part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will give residents information and a way to connect with community services.

The number to call is 403-529-8106 and will be staffed Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Officials will have also launched a web page with the same information and will update it regularly.

Residents are asked to direct health related questions to Alberta Health Services directly.
