We had a question about the use of the word "quarantine".... Staying home to avoid getting sick is not the same as being "quarantined". If you are feeling sick you can call health professionals who will ask you about your symptoms. Based you your symptoms they may suspect you have the coronavirus. If they believe you do they will give you advice such as possibly "Self Quarantine" If you are standing around talking to people and say "my daughter has been quarantined" because you told her not to leave the house, you will scare people.

The City Hotline 870-824-2762 is still active. If nobody is available to take your call they will call back based on your caller ID. This is not an emergency number.
