“If you suspect that you are showing COVID-19 symptoms or you want to report breaches of emergency orders by authorities or individuals, or you want to find out more about COVID-19, the national emergency orders, or you want to find out more about what is happening in the province then please, feel free to call this COVID-19 toll free number,” stated Pawut.
