COVID-19 Coronavirus

Non-hospitalized patients who have contracted COVID-19 have treatment options.

Antiviral treatments: An Antiviral treatment works by stopping the COVID-19 virus from multiplying in your body. Reducing the amount of COVID-19 virus in your body may help prevent you from getting worse and reduces the need for hospitalization.
