Covid Clinic Expands Services to Include Access to Treatment and Antiviral Prescriptions
21 July 2022 - - California-based COVID-19 testing site network Covid Clinic is expanding its core service offerings, the company said.

The clinic will continue to provide its proven COVID-19 testing services across the United States.

In partnership with Driven Care, patients will now be able to easily access treatment options, including antiviral prescription services and consultations, through its newly launched telemedicine services.

As of July 11, 2022, the CDC reported a new daily average of nearly 104,000 positive COVID-19 cases with new hospitalization metrics slowly and steadily increasing alongside the infection rate.

As always, Covid Clinic strongly urges those who suspect they may have been exposed to or contracted COVID-19 to get tested as soon as possible in order to stop the spread and prevent a return to early pandemic levels.

To help support this goal, Covid Clinic will continue to provide easy access to no-cost-to-patient testing services across the country while rolling out new treatment services, beginning TODAY, to further strengthen the level of care the clinic has become known for.

The process for accessing Covid Clinic's additional services is simple. Patients who suspect they may have been exposed and/or are experiencing symptoms can visit their local Covid Clinic testing location and receive a test.

If the patient tests positive for COVID-19, they can book a zero-cost-to-patient appointment through the website to connect virtually with a licensed provider in minutes.

During that on-demand appointment, the physician will review the patient's test results, confirm symptoms, and, if appropriate, develop a treatment plan that may include a prescription for antiviral medications, thereby completing a seamless, end-to-end patient experience that can help families and communities collectively manage and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Covid Clinic is a diagnostic and treatment company with a nationwide network of COVID-19 testing sites that started as a grassroots effort to step into the community health breach as the global pandemic began to ravage the United States in March of 2020.

This undertaking, spearheaded by a group of caring individuals and healthcare workers in Southern California, started with next to nothing to begin testing patients in the community.

Covid Clinic now has locations in 18 states across the United States and provides a comprehensive and robust suite of COVID-19 tests for patients of all ages. It also provides telehealth services.

Beyond COVID-19 testing, Covid Clinic plans to continue their community healthcare outreach efforts and expand their future testing offerings to include drugs, alcohol, pregnancy, and diseases such as tuberculosis, especially in underserved communities.

Clinic's available tests include Rapid Antibody, Rapid Antigen, Rapid COVID-19 + Flu Antigen Combo, and COVID-19 Molecular NAAT.

In addition, Covid Clinic offers collection services for Rapid PCR, Expedited PCR, and Respiratory Pathogen Panel, which are sent to CLIA certified third party laboratories for processing.

The rapid COVID-19 tests offered by Covid Clinic all have an Emergency Use Authorization issued by the FDA. Covid Clinic's testing sites are CLIA-compliant.

Sites are located in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Virginia, with more locations planned to open in the near future.
