Beacon opens free hotline for coronavirus


Beacon Health System now has a free phone screening for individuals in northern Indiana and southwest Michigan who have symptoms and are concerned they may have been exposed to coronavirus/COVID-19.

When calling the free hotline at 855-523-2225 callers will speak with a Beacon professional and answer questions related to symptoms, recent travel or possible exposure to individuals who have tested positive for coronavirus. Based on the answers provided, callers will be referred to the most appropriate level of care for further evaluation, if needed. Anyone experiencing life-threatening symptoms should call 9-1-1.

The hotline is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. Individuals do not need to be Beacon patients to use the free coronavirus phone screening service.
