FYI: Weekly Health Resources

HHS Test to Treat Initative


While vaccines remain the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 infection, treatments are also available for people infected with the disease. These treatments may help individuals avoid severe illness, hospitalization, and death.

HHS launched a nationwide Test to Treat initiative to help people quickly access lifesaving treatments for COVID-19 at little to no cost. The initiative is available at thousands of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally-funded health centers, long-term care facilities, and community-based sites.

Test to Treat gives individuals access to lifesaving treatment for COVID-19. People can be tested, treated, and prescribed treatment for COVID-19 by their healthcare providers (including telehealth) and other sites of care.
