Updated Local Information on
Reducing COVID-19 Hospitalizations
Early intervention with monoclonal antibody infusion therapy can shorten the duration of COVID-19 symptoms and reduce the risk of severe illness and hospitalization. This is becoming increasingly important as a surge of patients with the Delta variant continues to strain hospital resources.
The therapy is available to the following people:
- Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are within ten days of symptom onset
• Unvaccinated individuals who have had close contact with a COVID-positive person
• Vaccinated individuals who are immunocompromised and have had close contact with a COVID-positive person
If you or a close contact test positive for COVID-19, immediately contact (928) 681-8699 to see if you are eligible for treatment. Additional information about monoclonal antibody infusion therapy can be found at:
COVID-19 Cases are on the rise in many parts of the U.S., including Mohave County. Well over 90% of all those who are hospitalized, were not vaccinated. The Mohave County Health Department continues to urge all residents to get fully vaccinated. At this point, Mohave County has under 40% vaccinated. If you haven’t been fully immunized yet, please help our county reach a much higher percentage of vaccinations. The Delta variant is here and hospitalizations have increased locally.
