Early Treatment for COVID-19
An effective early treatment is available for persons who test positive and have the following risk factors:
- Anyone over age 12 with obesity, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, or whose immunity is compromised by disease or prescription treatments.
- Anyone age 12-17 with sickle cell disease; neuromuscular disorder; dependence on medical intervention, such as a breathing or feeding tube; or a lung disorder such as asthma that requires daily medication.
- Anyone over age 55 with cardiovascular disease, hypertension, COPD or other chronic respiratory disease.
- Anyone over age 65.
If you test positive, and have any of these risk factors, ask your health care provider about early COVID-19 treatments.
