"The hotline is being provided through a long-standing emergency predparedness partnership between DHHR's Bureau for Public Health and the West Virginia Poison Center." 

Even though the WV Poison Center is operating the WV Coronavirus Hotline with its health care professional staff and supervised health care professional volunteers: 

The West Virginia Poison Center is dedicated to remaining available for poison questions and emergencies. Only trained Poison Specialists are answering these special calls: 


For poisoning questions or emergencies, call the WV Poison Center first. 

(If a person is having a seizure, is unconscious, or not breathing, call 911) 

There are many accidental poisonings and medication errors that can be managed at home. Home care is immediate care and avoids a trip to the hospital if this is not required. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting the strain on our health care facilities is especially important, as is limiting contact with large numbers of people.
