4 Things to Know About Treating Patients for COVID

Hospitalizations of patients with COVID have been ticking upward since the fall of 2022. We can keep more people out of the hospital and from dying by educating our patients about treatment options for people at increased risk for severe COVID illness.  Here are 4 things to keep in mind about treating patients for COVID:

  1. Physicians and other authorized health care providers are being advised to treat high-risk patients—even if their symptoms are mild—to reduce their chances of severe illness, hospitalization, or death.
  2. Priority patients for treatment are those 50 and older (especially those over 65) and those with underlying conditions that put them at increased risk for COVID complications.
  3. Knowing a patient’s medical history and current medications is critical to guide treatment options.
  4. Treatment for high-risk eligible patients must begin within 5 to 7 days of symptom onset, depending on the treatment.  

Effectiveness of treatments against Omicron subvariants

Currently authorized or approved treatments for COVID are expected to continue to be active against the currently circulating Omicron subvariants. Federal health agencies are monitoring data and will issue alerts and recommendations as needed to help physicians provide their patients with the best and most effective treatment possible.

Vaccination remains the best protection

The best advice we can still give our patients is to stay up to date with their COVID vaccine—that includes getting an updated bivalent COVID vaccine as soon as they’re eligible.

Wearing masks in indoor public settings where the risk that COVID poses to the community is high also helps protect our patients.
