White House Ramps Up Long COVID-19 Research Efforts 

On Tuesday, the Biden Administration unveiled plans to advance progress in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and provision of services, supports, and interventions for individuals experiencing Long COVID and associated conditions. Long COVID – also known as long-haul COVID – is a post-COVID condition of new, returning, or ongoing health problems that people can experience four or more weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. In some rare cases, these post-COVID symptoms can last several months.  

The plan includes efforts to create a new research task force, improve enrollment in the RECOVER Initiative study run by the National Institutes of Health, coordinate support for long-term patients and increase awareness of the long-term effects of COVID-19. The plan also calls for expanded availability of long COVID clinics and bolstering health insurance coverage for long COVID care. The interagency effort will be overseen by directing Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.  For more information, review the White House fact sheet on the plan, or review the CDC’s webpage on long COVID

Treat a positive as a positive, regardless of the type of test used, and be sure to report your result with our self-test reporting form.
