ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

COVID-19 treatments are not substitutes for COVID-19 vaccines.
It is best to get vaccinated to prevent getting ill in the first place. 

What to know about COVID-19 treatments/therapies
If you test positive for COVID-19, different treatment options may be available to you. These treatments can reduce the risk of becoming seriously ill or hospitalized due to COVID-19. 

 
If you test positive for COVID-19, talk to your primary care provider or an urgent care provider right away to see if you qualify for treatment. This is especially important for high risk individuals. You must have a referral from a health care provider to receive treatment         


The Health Department does not provide COVID-19 treatments. 

Types of COVID-19 treatments
 
Antiviral medications may help you recover from COVID-19 faster or prevent you from becoming seriously ill. The medication can boost the immune system, helping it fight off COVID-19 infection. Antivirals are prescribed after a person has tested positive for COVID-19 and within 5 days of symptom onset. Paxlovid and Molnupiravi are two types of oral antiviral medications. 

Monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatment is an investigational therapy used to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19. It is approved for emergency use in non-hospitalized adults and pediatric patients who are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19 symptoms or the need for hospitalization. MAbs may be given as an infusion or a series of injections.

Test to Treat
The new nationwide Test to Treat initiative provides quick access to free treatment for COVID-19. Through this program, people can get tested and – if they are positive and treatments are appropriate for them – receive a prescription from a health care provider, and have their prescription filled all at one location. 


These "One-Stop Test to Treat" sites are available at hundreds of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally qualified health centers, and long-term care facilities. Search for a Test to Treat location here.
