Tested positive for COVID-19? You may benefit from the monoclonal antibody therapy for outpatient treatment for COVID-19.
This treatment works by reducing the amount of virus in your body. The drug is given through an IV infusion at Faith Regional Health Services and only requires one dose. Receiving this treatment after a positive COVID-19 test and as soon as COVID-19 symptoms begin may reduce your likelihood of being hospitalized for COVID-19. After 10 days of symptom onset, you are no longer eligible to get the infusion treatment.
Criteria may continue to evolve based on availability. If you test positive and it’s within 10 days of symptoms onset, call your primary care provider. Find a family medicine provider.
