Long-Term Effects of COVID-19

Do you have ongoing COVID symptoms?

Some people have health problems after an initial recovery from COVID-19. Symptoms range across the body, but people may experience difficulty breathing, difficulty thinking, extreme fatigue, anxiety and depression. These symptoms may last weeks or months, and can occur among adults, children and even those with mild or no initial COVID-19 symptoms. We do not yet have enough data on the cause of these ongoing symptoms, what they mean, or how long they may last. Doctors and researchers are still learning about the long-term effects of COVID-19. More information is available about Post-COVID Conditions.

If you are experiencing new or ongoing symptoms, call your Primary Care Provider to make an appointment. Together, you can discuss possible treatment options.
