Current numbers in White Pine County have been difficult to track due to the wide availability of home tests.
In the last 48 hours we have had 10 Positive Cases.
• Headaches, Sore Throats, Fatigue, Runny/Stuff nose, Diarrhea, Vomiting.
• Treatment: Paxlovid is an antiviral medication, that increases the bodies ability to fight against the virus. Requirements to get the medication:
*Positive Test Results and Doctors Approval
*Oral Medications: 5 day treatment morning and night
*More Information: https://labeling.pfizer.com/showlabeling.aspx?id=16473
If positive: You should quarantine for 5 days, stay home and avoid crowds and public spaces. After 5 days you are encouraged to wear a mask for another 5 days as you go about your business.
Still the most effective treatment to avoid hospitalization.
