Top News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind.– Union Health on Friday announced the Incident Command Center and COVID-19 hotline would close effective immediately.

“The Incident Command Center at Union Health has been the nucleus to all COVID-19 operations,” a news released stated “For the last 82 days, a core team of nine Union Health team members have worked around the clock, providing up-to-date information on the Coronavirus and how it impacts health services and operations at Union Health.”

Since opening its lines in mid-March, the COVID-19 hotline received more than 5,000 calls; however, officials said the number of incoming calls within the past few weeks has drastically declined.

“It is important to note that should a surge in COVID-19 cases arise across the Wabash Valley again, both the Incident Command Center and Hotline are available, if needed,” according to the news release.

Union Health encouraged individuals with questions regarding COVID-19 to contact their primary care provider.
