What Is Long Covid?
Long Covid Information + Resources
Long Covid is a range of symptoms that can last weeks or months after first being infected with the virus that causes Covid-19 or can appear weeks or months after infection.
Long Covid can happen to anyone who has had Covid-19 even if your illness was mild or you had no symptoms. Some of the most prevalent Long Covid symptoms include:
Joint or muscle pain
Fast-beating or pounding heart
Depression or anxiety
Symptoms that worsen with physical or mental activity
Long Covid Treatments
There are no treatments for Long Covid–yet. Right now, we don’t know enough about it to understand how to treat it.
Our Long Covid Registry is a community of people with Long Covid + control volunteers collectively providing the research community with critical insight into the lived experience + genetics of Long Covid and other post-viral illnesses.
Our aim is to create a large, rich dataset over time to drive discovery of potential treatments and cures.
