How do I know if I have long COVID?

Long COVID can make people to feel unwell for many weeks, or months, and even after they no longer have COVID-19.

Some symptoms of long COVID include:

  • extreme tiredness
  • coughing
  • breathlessness
  • problems with memory and concentration.

COVID-19 vaccines can help reduce the chance of experiencing long COVID. Make sure you keep up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines to help protect yourself from long COVID.

If you tested positive for COVID-19 more than a few weeks ago, and you’re still feeling unwell, have a yarn with your healthcare worker.
