If you test positive for COVID, there are several steps you can take to keep yourself and the ones close to you safe. The majority of people who come down with COVID have mild to moderate symptoms — fever, chills, cough, and other symptoms similar to a bad cold or the flu and recover in a couple of weeks. Those with more serious cases may take several weeks to recover. An effective treatment option is available for patients who have tested positive for COVID and are considered to be high-risk for possible hospitalization. Monoclonal antibody infusions are available at The Medical Center.
These are administered to patients intravenously IV while the patient is under observation. Not everyone is eligible for the infusion, however. COVID patients already receiving supplemental oxygen therapy cannot get the infusion.

The infusion takes one hour with an additional hour of observation and only one dose is necessary.
