COVID-19 Treatments in California Virtual Forum
Did you know there are resources available if you test positive for COVID-19? On December 7th a virtual forum on COVID-19 Treatments: Helping Your Community Get Access Through Telehealth was presented by the CA Department of Public Health, Occupational Health Branch & Office of Health Equity.
COVID-19 treatments are free, widely available, and very effective. But do you know how to help your community get treatment quickly after testing positive?
At this webinar, participants learned what COVID-19 treatments are, why most adults should consider getting treatment if positive for COVID-19, and how to help your California community use a new free telehealth resource to get treatments ASAP. This telehealth resource is a FREE program that helps connect people in California who test positive for COVID-19 to a doctor who can prescribe them medication.
The presenter, Emily Estus, is the Deputy State Lead for the COVID-19 Therapeutics Task Force at the California Department of Public Health. In that role, she works on policies and programs that expand equitable access to COVID-19 treatment in California.
