A toll-free 2009 H1N1 influenza information line is now up and running in the Coastal Health District. Residents can access general information on the H1N1 flu 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling 1-888-497-8444.
The line provides callers with information on how the H1N1 flu is spread, how to avoid getting the flu and tips on what to do if you get sick. In addition, the information line provides answers to frequent questions regarding the H1N1 flu.
 The line was launched in an effort to educate residents throughout the district, which includes Bryan, Camden Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long and McIntosh counties.
“Flu activity still remains widespread and the 2009 H1N1 virus continues to be the current dominant influenza virus circulating in our communities,” said Dr. Diane Weems, Chief Medical Officer for the Coastal Health District. “It is my hope that the Coastal Health District information line will provide our citizens with the knowledge they need to help combat the spread of the virus.”
