Antibody Therapy Outpatient Treatment for COVID-19

Tested positive for COVID-19?

You may benefit from the monoclonal antibody therapy for outpatient treatment for COVID-19 at Faith Regional Health Services.

This treatment works by reducing the amount of the virus in your body. The drug is given to you through an IV infusion at Faith Regional in Norfolk and only requires one dose. If you receive this treatment after a positive COVID-19 test and as soon as you develop symptoms, you begin to reduce the likelihood of being hospitalized for COVID-19. After 10 days of symptom onset, you are no longer eligible to get the infusion treatment.

Criteria for Antibody Therapy Treatment

Criteria for receiving the treatment continues to evolve based on availability. If you test positive for COVID-19 and it's within 10 days of having symptoms, call your primary care provider.
