What should I do if I have ongoing symptoms?

You might have heard of ‘long COVID’. Long COVID is when your COVID-19 symptoms continue for some months after you were first infected with COVID-19. These symptoms include feeling tired, having a persistent cough, having trouble thinking clearly, depression or anxiety. Most people who have COVID-19 recover completely within a few weeks, but 5–15% of people who have had COVID-19 will still have some symptoms after three months.1,2

You should have a check-up with your GP if you are experiencing ongoing symptoms and/or need any additional support. 

You can also read the RACGP’s guide on managing post–COVID-19 symptoms.
