Health Connection September 2022

We may be through with COVID-19, but it’s not through with us. At least that’s how one in five American adults living with ongoing symptoms feels.

The condition where our bodies experience new or often unexplained symptoms after being infected with COVID-19 is called many different names—post-COVID, long COVID, long-haul COVID, post-acute COVID-19, post-acute sequelae of SARS CoV-2 infection (PASC), chronic COVID.

For clarity, we’ll use the term “post-COVID” when referring to the ongoing health problems resulting from COVID-19, which can last for weeks, months or even years after infection.
