CovidEMT Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: What is long COVID?
- Long COVID, also known as post-COVID, refers to symptoms that persist 12 weeks after being free of COVID-19. This includes lingering coughs, headaches, chest pains, and a slew of other symptoms. Post-COVID conditions can include a variety of ongoing health issues that can last weeks, months, or longer.
- Post-COVID conditions are more common in people who had severe COVID-19 illness, but anyone who has been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, including people who had a mild illness or no symptoms from COVID-19, can develop post-COVID conditions.
- People who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 and become infected may be at a higher risk of developing post-COVID conditions than those who have been vaccinated and have had breakthrough infections.
- While the majority of people with post-COVID conditions have evidence of infection or COVID-19 illness, in some cases, the person may not have tested positive for the virus or been aware they were infected.
