Dial 2-1-1 or access information online:
When you dial 211 from almost anywhere in the United States or Puerto Rico, you are connected with a trained professional
in your area who can connect you with resources and assistance for essential community services. It works just like dialing 911
where calls are routed by the local phone company to a calling center.
https://www.211la.org/
Dial 3-1-1:
3-1-1 is a special telephone number supported in many communities in Canada and the United States. The number provides
access to non-emergency municipal services, intended, in part, to divert routine inquiries and non-urgent community concerns
from the 9-1-1 number which is reserved for emergency service.

L.A. County Department of Mental Health:
The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) supports the wellbeing of our County family, friends and
colleagues. When you hear, read, or watch news about an outbreak of infectious disease, you may feel anxious and show signs
of stress—even when the outbreak affects people far from where you live and you are at low or no risk of getting sick. These
signs of stress are normal and may be more likely in people with loved ones in parts of the world affected by the outbreak.
During an infectious disease outbreak, care for your own physical and mental health and reach out in kindness to those
affected by the situation.
