COVID-19 Treatments

There are several COVID-19 treatment options available in the United States that can help you recover and keep you out of the hospital. Treatments work best when given as soon as possible after testing positive and developing symptoms.

Here is how to access outpatient COVID-19 treatments if you have symptoms:

  1. Talk to your health care provider right after you notice symptoms to learn if you qualify for a COVID-19 treatment.

  2. If you do not have a health care provider or do not hear back from your provider within a few days, visit a Test to Treat location to get rapid testing and find out if you are eligible for treatments.

  3. If you do not have insurance, visit an OptumServe location. 

Learn more about treatments and how to get them at bit.ly/CA_COVIDTreatments.

While treatments are an essential tool in the fight against COVID-19, vaccines are how we get through the pandemic. Go to MyTurn to book your appointment to find a walk-in clinic near you.

Use this toolkit to help your audience understand when and how to access COVID-19 treatments. This material is downloadable and shareable.
