Minnesota recently launched a new hotline specifically for refugees and immigrants to ensure they have access to accurate, timely information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Refugees and other immigrants can call 651-318-0989 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, for information on: 

  • COVID-19 testing locations
  • Food support
  • Health care and mental health resources 
  • Housing and rental assistance
  • COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing.

The hotline has staff that can speak Amharic, Anuak, Arabic, French, Hindi, Karen, Lingala, Luganda, Mashi, Oromo, Somali, Spanish and Swahili. Language line help is available for any other language.

Those who call the hotline can also get information about the services offered through Minnesota’s Resettlement Network, which helps refugees and other humanitarian immigrants with schooling, employment and citizenship. Learn more about the Resettlement Network on the department’s refugee programs webpage.
