-FOR DRUG INTERACTIONS WITH PAXLOVID, please  use the University of Liverpool Paxlovid Interaction online checker.  You can also look at all the meds on the table in the the EUA. Be careful with your own EMR interaction function as this drug is so new.  (note we had a short list but seemed like the list was growing so we are not recommending that any more. The U of Liverpool seems the most useful)

Infectious Disease Society has more resources and links to help manage drug interactions with Paxlovid

A prescription form in Word that you can adapt to your practice for Paxlovid and Molnupiravir orders (click here to download)

Wow, that mask really worked great!


In a new report, a hairdresser with COVID-19 gave it to her colleague. But of the 139 of their exposed customers, none of them caught the virus. The hairdressers and the customers were wearing masks during their work. This shows once again how effective masks are. Also that we need to work on how we interact with co-workers, not just customers and patients. To limit the spread of COVID-19, don't forget the lunchroom!

A Viral Faith

Please listen to this message from Pastor Phillip Miller from March 15, Westwood Baptist Church:

A Coronavirus Fighter



Dr. Alex Greninger is going to receive some major awards once this Covid-19 thing is all over. What an amazing amount of work he has done to make testing happen, despite the cement shoes put on him by the stultifying bureaucracies of this country. I appreciate his work and that of his department at the University of Washington. Please read the whole story up to this point here
