STEPS YOU CAN TAKE AFTER EXPOSURE

  • Exposed or Symptomatic:

    If you’ve been exposed or have symptoms, self-isolate, use Coronavirus Self-Checker, and get tested.

  • Confirmed Diagnosis:

    Consult with your physician immediately. They can recommend steps you can take to recover at home.

    Your physician can determine if you qualify for Monoclonal Antibody treatment. This treatment is most effective if given as soon as possible.

    If you have lingering symptoms, be sure to consult your physician and/or a post-COVID care center.
