What do I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

Please see the CDC website for more information.  

Paxlovid prescription consists of taking 2 pink tablets or 150 mg nirmatrelvir and one white-ish tablet of 100mg ritonavir in the morning and again in the evening by mouth with water and or food for five days.

Side effects of Paxlovid include: Allergic reaction, Liver disease, and others.  Conflicts with other medications do exist and it is important to tell your medical provider all the medications you are currently taking.
