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:
