Getting Your Booster
- The FDA has authorized bivalent COVID-19 boosters for children 6 months and older.
- Vaccinations are free, regardless of immigration or health insurance status.
- Many locations offer both COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the same appointment.
Free At-Home Tests Now Available Monthly Through Your Insurance
Health plans must cover 8 individual at-home over-the-counter COVID-19 tests per person enrolled in the plan per month. That means a family of four can get 32 tests per month for free.
The test will either be free directly at the point of sale, if your health plan provides for direct coverage, or by reimbursement if you are charged for your test. Be sure to keep your receipt if you need to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Testing After Exposure
According to the FDA, people who were exposed to COVID-19 but have no symptoms should test three times, each test 48 hours apart, instead of the two times recommended by many home test manufacturers. This is in line with research that shows repeat testing over a wider range of time has a better chance of detecting COVID-19.
You’ve Tested Positive, Now What?
- Stay at home when you have COVID-19.
- Notify any close contacts who may have been exposed.
- Stay away from other people. (Isolate from other household members as much as possible. Both the infected person and the household members should wear high quality masks when interacting).
- Stay in your own room.
- Clean your own room.
- Use your own bathroom.
- Clean your own bathroom.
- If possible, keep your room/house well ventilated (open windows, use HEPA air purifiers)
- Stay home until you feel better.
- You must stay home for at least 5 days.
- Tell someone if you are worried about how you feel.
- Wear a high-quality mask when around other people for 10 days (Kn94 or better is recommended)
- Track your symptoms and test every 2-3 days.
- Wait for a negative test to remove your mask around others.
COVID-19 therapeutics, such as Paxlovid, can help minimize or shorten symptoms, prevent hospitalization and death, and may lessen the occurrence of long-COVID.
If you test positive and are symptomatic, treatment may be right for you. Treatment works best within a couple days of symptom onset, so don’t wait!

Wear a Mask to Protect Yourself and Others
COVID-19 is an airborne virus. Wearing a high-quality mask (rated KN94 or higher) will offer the best protection along with regular handwashing and ventilation.
