Test to Treat Locations: There are medical treatment options available for people with COVID-19 who are at higher risk for severe illness from a COVID infection. If you start to develop symptoms of COVID-19, please test or call your healthcare provider right away. Talk to your healthcare provider about medications that can help reduce the risk of severe illness. Many of these medications needed to be taken within the first several days after symptoms develop so please don’t hesitate. Through the federal COVID Test to Treat program, CVS & Kroger pharmacies in Marysville may also be a good resource. These Test to Treat locations do COVID-19 testing and can prescribe and fill prescriptions to help people with COVID who are at higher risk for severe illness. Please contact these locations for details.
