Have general questions about COVID-19? Call the Tidelands Health nurse line for answers

Community members with general questions about COVID-19 can get answers directly from a Tidelands Health nurse through a new hotline.

The health system created the coronavirus nurse line to help residents get accurate, expert information from registered nurses about this new virus, how it spreads, precautions residents should take and more.

Nurses will be available through the hotline Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The nurse line number is 843-652-8800.

“The coronavirus pandemic has left many in our community with questions about how to protect yourself, whether certain activities put you at risk and more,” said Kelly Kaminski, director of community health resources at Tidelands Health. “Now, you can get those answers from a certified nurse through a simple phone call to our Tidelands Health nurse line. Our team is eager to provide the information and resources you need as we all work together through this unprecedented time.”

Nurses staffing the hotline will not provide a diagnosis or treatment advice. Community members who need medical attention should call their health care provider or, if it is an emergency, dial 911.

In addition to the nurse line, community members can find coronavirus information, videos and other resources in the coronavirus information center at tidelandshealth.org.
