COVID-19 Outpatient Treatments:

COVID-19 treatments are available for individuals who test positive, have symptoms, and are at high risk for a  severe COVID-19 infection. Many Mainers remain unaware of the availability of COVID-19 treatments. Our social service partners are helping to educate Maine communities about treatment availability and are connecting individuals to treatment assessments and providers. They continue to work to ensure equitable  access to healthcare treatments for all communities throughout Maine. 

For more information about COVID-19 Outpatient Treatments visit this website: The Maine Community Vaccination (& Testing) Line 1-888-445- 4111 is preparing to field questions about Covid-19 treatment options. This resource should be available very  soon (try it!).
