  • COVID-19 Hotline
    The state of Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has established a 24/7 COVID-19 hotline operated by medical professionals to provide guidance to health care providers and citizens. The number is 877-435-8411.

    Broadband Providers Respond to COVID-19
    Broadband access is more important than ever, as Missourians have been instructed to stay home from work and school as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Accessibility is critical to meet our needs for education as well as telemedicine, telecommuting and overall quality of life. In response to this, several broadband providers are temporarily offering free internet service, waiving disconnect and late fees, providing access to Wi-Fi hot spots, and other measures to help people at home access the services they need.
