COVID-19 Resources

With coronavirus containment and response a top priority, United Personnel has compiled a list of resources for people during this time.

Employees

  • If you’re ill, call your doctor's office, emergency department, or urgent care if you have a fever and respiratory symptoms and are concerned about possible exposure to COVID-19. Health care providers request that you call before you go to a medical facility, as they are very busy with patient seeking care during this pandemic. As always, if you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, call 911 and seek emergency care immediately.

Every day thousands of people across North America turn to 211 for information and support—whether financial, domestic, health or disaster-related. 211 is a free, confidential referral and information helpline and website that connects people of all ages and from all communities to the essential health and human services they need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
