The viral pandemic is finally getting the state to fund a hotline that has been mired in controversy for years.

But there will be restrictions on what those seeking information can be told about abortions.

Gov. Doug Ducey said Sunday he is allocating $2 million from the Department of Economic Security for the state to contract with the Crisis Response Center to run a 2-1-1 service to provide information on COVID-19. The idea, according to a press release from the governor, is to provide a single “entry point” to field questions and concerns from Arizona residents about the virus.

“With this hotline launch, Arizonans can get important COVID-19 related information in English and Spanish by simply dialing 2-1-1,” Ducey said in a prepared statement.
