Several treatments for COVID-19 are now available to those at higher risk for progression to severe disease, but not currently sick enough to require hospital care. These medications are free, but require a prescription from a healthcare provider. If you test positive for COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe illness, ask your healthcare provider if you are eligible to receive medication to treat COVID-19. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call 311 and ask to be connected to a communicable disease nurse who can assist you in finding care. Healthcare providers can also ask to speak with a communicable disease nurse to learn more about COVID-19 treatment options. If you are a healthcare provider, click here for more information

Those at risk for severe illness are more likely to be hospitalized, require intensive care, and may die due to COVID-19. Risk factors for severe COVID-19 infection include age over 65 and/or certain medical conditions. Find out more here.
