Treatment now more widely available for people who are at high risk for COVID-19

– COVID-19 treatment is now more widely available across San Luis Obispo County for people who are at high risk from COVID-19.

Test to Treat addresses the need for prompt treatment for people age 65 and older and those with health conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19. This treatment must be started within five days of the first symptoms—the sooner, the better, according to the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department.

  • Rapid testing for COVID-19
  • Medical consultation, as appropriate
  • Paxlovid anti-viral pills, if indicated
