Paxlovid Found to Reduce Risk of Long COVID

A recent large study has found that people who took Paxlovid within a few days of COVID-19 infection were 26 percent less likely to have long COVID symptoms three months later. This is consistent with other findings suggesting that Long COVID risk is associated with disease severity. Paxlovid reduces the risk of hospitalization by 90 percent. COVID-19 vaccination also reduces both disease severity and Long COVID risk.  Review the study to learn more.

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
