Who To Call In An Emergency

By on March 22, 2020

Verona’s first responders want to make sure that you call the right number for help during the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Call 9-1-1 if a person is in cardiac arrest or unconscious; has had a stroke, seizure or heart attack; in cases of severe blood loss or complex births; and for traumatic injuries, shooting, stabbing or drowning.

The New Jersey Department of Health has repurposed 2-1-1 for calls related to the coronavirus. Please call this emergency number if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 or if you have questions about it; if you have flu symptoms such as fever, body ache, chills, runny nose, sore throat and are not requesting an ambulance. If you have any of these symptoms or think that you have been exposed to COVID-19, please isolate yourself and call your doctor to discuss treatment options.

For COVID-19 information, you can also call the state hotline, 1-800-962-1253, which operates around the clock or text NJCOVID to 898-211.
