From the Document: "While most people with COVID-19 [coronavirus 2019] get better within weeks, some continue to have symptoms--or develop new ones--after their initial recovery. The technical term for this is 'Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2],' or PASC, but it is more commonly called 'long COVID.' People with long COVID are often called 'long-haulers.' Long COVID [hyperlink] can happen to anyone who has had COVID-19, even those who had only mild symptoms. It can persist for a long time, and severity can range from mild to incapacitating. If you have long COVID, you may need assistance to do things you did by yourself in the past. You also may need to make changes in your life or to your home to adapt to the changes in your abilities. [...] We compiled this guide to help you connect to services and supports in your community."
