Treatments for COVID-19 are now widely available. If you test positive and are an older adult or someone who is at high risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, treatment may be available. Contact a healthcare provider right away after a positive test to determine if you are eligible, even if your symptoms are mild right now.
Be sure to talk to a healthcare professional about treatment options before taking any medicine. People have been seriously harmed and even died after taking products not approved for COVID-19, even products approved or prescribed for other uses.
There are now locations where you can get tested and, if you test positive for COVID-19, you may also be eligible to receive treatment. If you test positive at a different location or with an at-home test, you can also go to these Test-to-Treat locations to receive a prescription from a qualified health care provider and treatment on the spot if eligible. Some Test-to-Treat sites also have telehealth options available.
A Test to Treat locator is available to help find participating sites. A call center is also available at 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489) to get help in English, Spanish, and more than 150 other languages – 8:00 am to midnight ET, 7 days a week.
The Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) is also available to specifically help people with disabilities access services. To get help, call 1-888-677-1199, Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm ET or email DIAL@usaginganddisability.org.
