This transmission electron microscope image shows SARS-CoV-2—also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus that causes COVID-19—isolated from a patient in the U.S. Virus particles are shown emerging from the surface of cells cultured in the lab. The spikes on the outer edge of the virus particles give coronaviruses their name, crown-like.

The Butte-Silver Bow Unified Health Command has opened a call center in response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

The call center is now live and will be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

According to Tina Randall, Butte Community Health Division director, there are currently four active phone lines being monitored by health department employees and members of the Butte-Silver Bow's UHC.

"A variety of calls have already been taken," said Randall.

Those calls include concerns about symptoms of COVID-19, along with concerned business owners asking for updates on mandatory shutdowns.

Members of the public can call the line at 406-497-5008 with questions or concerns. If you call after 8 p.m., you can leave a message and you will receive a return call during operating hours.
