The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has named this syndrome as post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC), and you will often see it called Long COVID or Post COVID Conditions. People living with these symptoms are sometimes referred to as COVID-19 long-haulers.
Those living with Long-COVID or Post-COVID Conditions are individuals who still have persistent symptoms for 4 weeks or longer that are either continuous or arise weeks or months after initially recovering from COVID-19. Many will suffer for months, and report prolonged, multisystem involvement and significant disability.
Multiple provinces across Canada now have their own support groups, creating hubs to connect with others specifically in your province. You can stay updated with local and provincial information, including new clinics.
