COVID-19 Resources

Mar 13 2020

If you have an immediate need to contact a federal agency during this outbreak, please email covid19@lee.senate.gov for our help. However, if you are experiencing any health complications, please contact a health care facility or individual. This email is not monitored in real time nor can our office provide individual advice on how to treat or prevent the coronavirus. Additionally, please only use this email if you are truly in need of time-sensitive service. Any regular correspondence will only delay our ability to serve Utahns in desperate need. Letters to the Senator voicing your opinions about matters should continue to be sent via our contact form at the top right corner of our home page.

If you're worried about whether you may have COVID-19, please call the Utah Coronavirus Information Line at 1-800-456-7707.

If you are a health care provider evaluating a patient for suspected novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, please contact the Utah Department of Health immediately at 888-EPI-UTAH (374-8824).

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include:

Steps to prevent illness

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
  • Stay home if you’re sick
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean and disinfect
