-Saturdays will be available to anyone, according to the state.

For those using the call center:

Residents can access the call center at either 800-244-5631 or 866-488-4016 (TTY)

-Those residents with last names beginning with letters A-M will be asked to call Tuesdays and Thursdays between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
