Long COVID or Post COVID syndrome

Living Well with Long COVID

Most infections with COVID improve within the first 4 weeks. “Long COVID” is an informal term that is commonly used to describe signs and symptoms that continue or develop after an acute infection of COVID. Depending on how long you have ongoing symptoms for, it can be called one of 2 things:

Ongoing symptomatic COVID

This is where your symptoms continue for more than 4 weeks. If your symptoms last for longer than 12 weeks, it will then be called;

Post-COVID Syndrome

This is where your ongoing symptoms continue for longer than 12 weeks and cannot be explained by any other condition.

If you would like more information or advice about living with Long COVID or Post COVID syndrome then there is support group information and links below.
