CDC Expected to Release Guidance on Identifying, Managing Long COVID

The Long COVID Alliance was recently mentioned in an article by journalist Chelsea Cirruzzo for U.S. News & World Report.

Cirruzzo writes, “Guidance on how health care providers can identify long COVID is forthcoming from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a CDC official says.”

“Dr. John Brooks, chief medical officer for the CDC’s COVID-19 response, referenced the forthcoming guidance at a congressional hearing in late April. Long COVID, as recognized by the CDC and National Institutes of Health, encompasses a range of illness symptoms that can persist weeks to months following an initial infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, or that can appear weeks afterward. Symptoms can include brain fog, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, dizziness and shortness of breath, among others.”
