The Hunterdon County Department of Health has established an Information Line for Hunterdon County Hispanic Residents, known as the Hispanic Health InfoLine: 908-284-6188. 

Launched by the Hunterdon County Department of Health and managed by the department's Public Health Nursing & Education division, this brand new, dedicated phone resource provides — in Spanish as well as in English — timely information and updates about public health issues affecting the Hispanic community.  The phone line will also serve as an emergency information source for Spanish-speaking residents in the event of a community disaster or disease outbreak.

To help promote awareness of this new phone resource among the Hispanic community, the county health department is sending public health notices — translated into Spanish — to area businesses, organizations and agencies.  Owners, managers and vendors are asked to post the bulletins in visible, high-traffic spots at their locations.  The notices are intended to help keep Hunterdon County's Hispanic community informed about public health issues, beginning with the launching of the Hispanic Health InfoLine. 

SAMPLE NOTICES: Spanish Version - English Version

For more information, please contact the Hunterdon County Department of Health, Division of Public Health Nursing & Education at 908-806-4570 or email them at phn@co.hunterdon.nj.us
