How long is the contagious period for COVID-19?
"A person with COVID-19 is considered infectious starting two days before they develop symptoms, or two days before the date of their positive test if they do not have symptoms," according to the CDC. Regardless of symptoms, those who test positive are advised to take specific precautions for at least 10 days.
How long does it take for COVID-19 symptoms to start showing after exposure to the virus?

When should you take Paxlovid?
Based on studies conducted so far, Paxlovid should be prescribed within five days of symptoms appearing for the best chance of success. Taking the pills within this window has been shown to lower the risk of severe illness or hospitalization by 89% among people most vulnerable to the worst effects of COVID-19.
How can I get Paxlovid?
Can anyone get a Paxlovid prescription? The FDA authorized Paxlovid for people ages 12 and older who weigh at least 88 pounds. But in order to qualify for a prescription, you must also have had a positive COVID-19 test result and be at high risk for developing severe COVID-19.
