COVID-19 & Public Health Information
The Town of Boone, Watauga County, and Appalachian State University are coordinating with AppHealthCare on the COVID-19 response. AppHealthCare has created a COVID-19 call center which will connect callers to Call Center Specialist who is available for questions related to COVID-19 including vaccine appointments, public health guidance, vaccine verification, test results and more. This call center is open Monday-Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm and the number to contact is (828) 795-1970.
The Town of Boone staff are hard at work to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the community. Please visit AppHealthCare's website for the most up-to-date local information. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services also are great resources for prevention, care, and tracking where cases are being found.
