COVID-19 antiviral treatments are effective at reducing chances of severe illness. But if you have symptoms, it’s important to act fast and consult with a healthcare provider within five days of the start of those symptoms. The COVID-19 Test-to-Treat Telehealth program can help you do just that, at little to no cost.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and have tested positive or been exposed to a known case of COVID-19, you are eligible for the state’s COVID-19 Telehealth Program. KFAI’s Ryan Dawes spoke with Walter James from the Minnesota Department of Health about the new program.
If eligible, you can consult with a clinician for free and get a prescription for a COVID-19 antiviral treatment at care.cuehealth.com or by using the Cue Health App for smartphones. You can also talk to a clinician over the phone at 1-844-609-2415.
