In the past few weeks, we've had some cases of COVID crop up among our members. Thankfully, we are at a new place with the pandemic where vaccines are helping reduce the risk of infection and, even among those who do get infected, a greatly reduced risk of hospitalization.
One of the new tools in place is the Test to Treat initiative from the Biden-Harris administration. Under Test to Treat, you can take your positive home test to an authorized site, get screened and receive the therapeutic antivirals Lagevrio (molnupiravir) or Paxlovid. You can also be rapid tested at a Test to Treat site. The Test to Treat Locator can help you find a site near you.
Time is critical! You must take the antivirals within 5 days of the onset of symptoms. Don't delay if you have symptoms - get tested and get treatment.
All Saints is thankful for the scientific innovations God has given us! We encourage our members to be vaccinated and vigilant in taking care of their health and that of our neighbors.
