TREATMENT

Most COVID-19 cases are associated with mild or no symptoms and do not require any medical intervention. For those patients with moderate symptoms or risk factors for moderate to severe disease, some medical treatments may be appropriate in the outpatient setting. Patients who are very high risk or severely ill are referred to their local hospital system for inpatient care.

Outpatient management of COVID-19 is done on an individualized basis. We take into account multiple factors including age and conditions that may put a patient at higher risk for complication before creating an individualized treatment plan.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you have COVID-19, please review guidance from the CDC.
