How does the program work?

When someone in Yadkin County test positive for COVID-19 -or- has been exposed and is at high risk for complications from COVID-19, our Community Paramedic will determine if the patient meets the qualifications within our Standing Order. If the patient does meet the qualifications, the Community Paramedic will schedule an at-home appointment for a mAbs infusion. This service is at no cost to the patient.
