RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ The Virginia Department of Health is helping answer questions from the public and provide the most up-to-date information regarding Ebola to Virginians. The agency says it has set up a hotline that’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hotline can be reached at 877-275-8343. Officials say Virginia’s 211 Call Center will be handling these calls using frequently asked questions developed by the department. State Health Commissioner Dr. Marissa Levine says Virginians are understandably concerned about their risk of catching Ebola and the agency is responding through multiple channels. Updates and answers to frequently asked questions are also being shared daily via the agency’s website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
