Treatment / Outpatient Therapy for COVID-19

If you test positive for COVID-19, different treatment options may be available to you. These treatments can reduce the risk of becoming seriously ill or hospitalized due to COVID-19. This is especially important for those who are high risk and/or are not up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines. You must have a referral from a health care provider to access these treatments.

Antigen Testing for COVID-19

At-home rapid (antigen) tests can be taken at home or anywhere. They're easy to use and they produce quick results. You can use these tests regardless of vaccination status, whether or not you have symptoms, or if you have had a known or unknown exposure. See a list of FDA-authorized at-home tests here

Students, here is all-in-one guidance for what to do, depending on where you live, for:

Past COVID-19 Infection

If you’ve had COVID-19, with or without symptoms, you may have questions.

After COVID-19 infection, will I be immune to it?

People who had COVID-19 may have some immunity against it for up to three months after infection.  Through time, immunity likely wanes.
