In a development that they have done absolutely nothing to publicize, the Federal government has set up a network of COVID testing sites where you can get a prescription for the oral antiviral Paxlovid right on site if you test positive. You can also bring a positive at-home test there and get Paxlovid as well.
Paxlovid has to be taken at the very start of symptoms to be effective, so it's very important to get it as soon after testing positive as you can. These sites could be a big help in that regard, particularly if you don't have an established relationship with a GP or family doctor.
There are more details and a locator for participating testing sites on the HHS website: https://aspr.hhs.gov/TestToTreat/Pages/default.aspx

One of the things I miss about the Google plus interface was how easy it was to search for/find & create small communities of interest.
I wish there was a way to do that more simply in the fediverse.
So, where are my spec fic writers at???
