Assess yourself if you are sick with a respiratory illness

COVID-19 treatment

Your symptoms could be compatible with COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses.

If you were to test positive for COVID-19, you might be eligible to receive anti-viral treatment such as Paxlovid. In order to receive treatment, you will have to see a health care provider for assessment and testing. Paxlovid can only be given within 5 days of symptom onset, and can only be given after confirmatory COVID-19 testing has been done.

To get assessed and discuss the need for testing, contact or visit:

  • your primary care provider in Whitehorse;
  • the nurse in your local health centre in rural Yukon; or
  • your local emergency department.
