COVID-19 Testing Information and Resources

COVID-19 Treatment Options

If you test positive for COVID-19, you have different treatment options depending on the severity of your symptoms. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options, as they will be able to help decide the best one for you. 

Outpatient Treatments

Outpatient Treatments

Symptoms: Mild to Moderate: Mild symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, malaise (feeling unwell), headache, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste and smell. Moderate symptoms may also include shortness of breath.

Requirements: Having a healthcare provider’s referral, receiving treatment within 10 days of having first symptoms, being 12 years or older, having high risk status, or currently taking a medicine that weakens the immune system.

Monoclonal Antibody Treatments: mAbs, monoclonal antibody treatments, are made in a laboratory to fight a particular infection—in this case, SARS-CoV-2—and are given to patients directly with an infusion. Each works by attaching to SARS-CoV-2, and helps your immune system recognize and respond more effectively to the virus.

The FDA has authorized these for emergency use for patients with mild to moderate symptoms and determined that the benefits of these treatments are greater than their risks.

Outpatient Treatment Options

Inpatient Treatments

These treatments are for hospitalized patients with severe cases of COVID-19.

Symptoms: Moderate to Severe

Requirements: Healthcare provider’s recommendation

Because the coronavirus is a new virus, there's still so much to learn. Clinical trials are one of the best ways we can gain more answers. And while hundreds of COVID-19 clinical trials are currently underway, many are still looking for volunteers.

The participation of patient volunteers is critical to finding effective treatments. We’re continually looking for a diverse population of individuals to make sure the treatments and vaccines work for everyone affected by COVID-19.
