COVID-19 Treatment

Note: click on the items that are bold for links to more information. 

While most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home, some people require medical care and treatment.  For those who are at high risk of developing severe COVID-19, two different medicines are available to help prevent severe illness and shorten the length of time one is sick.

Paxlovid and Lagevrio work by stopping the virus that causes COVID-19 from reproducing in your body.  Paxlovid is for people who are 12 years of age and older and who weigh at least 88 pounds.  Lagevrio is for those 18 and older.

To receive these medicines, you either need a prescription from your doctor, or visit a Test-to-Treat site. 

Both medicines are most effective when taking as soon as possible after testing positive for COVID-19.  Find a test near you by clicking here.  

Talk to your health care provider to see which COVID-19 medication may be right for you.
