Post-COVID Conditions (or Long COVID)

Some individuals experience returning illness, recurring health problems, or a range of new symptoms weeks or months after having COVID-19. This is referred to as post-COVID conditions, long COVID or other names. Individuals with these conditions are sometimes called “long-haulers.” As of July 2021, “long COVID,” is considered a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Anyone who had COVID-19 can develop post-COVID conditions, including people who had COVID-19 with no symptoms or very mild symptoms. It can happen to people in any age group but appears to be less common in children compared to adults.

The best way to prevent post-COVID conditions is by taking precautions to prevent COVID-19. This includes getting the COVID-19 vaccine and booster, and wearing a face mask that has both good fit and good filtration, like an N95, KF94, or KN95.

Anyone can get long COVID but the best way to prevent it is by getting the COVID-19 vaccine and booster, and wearing a mask that has both good fit and good filtration, like an N95, KF94, or KN95. https://myturn.ca.gov/ #VoicesofLongCovid
