ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – The New York State Department of Health launched a website today to those who are battling long COVID.

The information builds on New York State’s ongoing work to fight long COVID statewide.

“As we continue to assess the impact of long COVID on New Yorkers and support clinical and diagnostic considerations, this new website and materials will help New Yorkers seeking care for long COVID symptoms,” State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said. “Healthcare providers and New Yorkers should know that long COVID remains a serious, concerning condition, underscoring the importance of those struggling seeking, and being provided with care. All New Yorkers should stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, as emerging research continues to suggest vaccination is protective against long COVID.”
