1/19/23—The LA County Dept. of Public Health has released updated information about treatments for COVID-19. Treatments can help you from getting very sick, and may also help you feel better sooner. In addition, early evidence suggests that treatments may make people test negative sooner and lower the risk of developing long COVID. People with symptoms and a positive test may qualify for treatment if they are age 50 or older, have health conditions, or are unvaccinated or not up to date wit COVID-19 vaccinations.
