A new service is now available for Tasmanians who have been diagnosed with post COVID-19 condition, or long COVID.
The service assists patients virtually to self-manage their symptoms. It provides patients with resources and tools, or referral into allied health services if appropriate.
Most people who have COVID-19 will experience mild illness and symptoms and will recover within a few weeks. However, some people may experience persistent symptoms. If your symptoms continue for 12 weeks after they first started, this may be diagnosed as post COVID-19 condition or long COVID.
If you think you have post COVID-19 condition, visit your GP or health professional to confirm your diagnosis and talk about whether the post COVID-19 navigation service is right for you.
