What is Long COVID?
For some people, coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause symptoms that last weeks or months after the infection has gone. This is sometimes called post-COVID-19 syndrome or "long COVID".
How long it takes to recover from COVID-19 is different for everyone. Many people feel better in a few days or weeks and most will make a full recovery within 12 weeks. For some people, symptoms can last longer.

When you are managing a long-term health condition such as Long COVID, it can be more difficult to get active. However, small increases in your level of physical activity can have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing and may help you to manage your symptoms.
The Let's Move Lincolnshire website contains an Activity Finder to help you find activities near you. Guidance on how to be active with a health condition provides advice to help make those first steps easier.
