When Is The Best Time To Get Tested For Covid After Exposure

?

Covid is a very effective treatment if it is started promptly. It may take several weeks for the immune system to fully recover after exposure, and most people will need their normal doses of antivirals for up to three months. In some cases, the virus may be reactivated after receiving Covid or an additional dose of antiviral medicine in response to worsening signs or symptoms of flu-like illness. If you have been exposed at work and experience any severe flu-like illness within 2 days of not receiving your vaccination (or if your vaccination was delayed), please call us immediately so that we can assess whether there are other options available for you such as GCV vaccine or medication in addition to Covid.
