Comprehensive Care for Long COVID
At University of Utah Health, our COVID-19 Clinic provides patient-focused care for individuals age 18 and older who struggle with long COVID—COVID-19 symptoms that persist long after a person has recovered from the disease. People with long COVID are also known as "long-haulers". In collaboration with researchers who study long COVID, our clinical care team uses the latest research findings to guide our treatment plans. Our clinic also supports and lends expertise to other providers within the community who are also caring for patients with prolonged symptoms of COVID-19.
COVID-19 Long-Hauler Symptoms
Studies show that an estimated 30 percent of COVID-19 patients will experience post-infection symptoms after they've recovered.
Common symptoms, which range from mild to debilitating, include:
- shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,
- joint pain,
- chest pain,
- memory or concentration issues,
- sleep problems,
- muscle pain,
- fast or pounding heartbeat,
- loss of smell or taste,
- depression or anxiety,
- dizziness when standing, or
- symptoms that worsen after physical or mental activities.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
At your initial appointment, one of our providers will evaluate you for symptoms related to long COVID. We will then perform a physical exam and refer you to the appropriate specialists for treatment.
Based on your symptoms and treatment plan, your care team may include:
- ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialists,

- psychiatrists, and
- social workers.
We will also provide you with breathing exercises and resources for rehabilitation programs if needed.
