Pass the CARE for Long Covid Act

Contact your elected officials to request they cosponsor the CARE for Long Covid Act

According to a February 2023 survey by the National Center for Health Statistics, nearly 28 percent of adults who have experienced a COVID-19 infection have, at some point, experienced serious lingering symptoms, including neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory, and mental health symptoms, sometimes months after their infection. With over 100 million cases of COVID-19 recorded in the United States, Long Covid is a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems that people experience after being infected with COVID-19 and has emerged as a complex and urgent public health concern.

Additional resources are needed to aid our understanding of the symptoms of Long Covid, as well as to reduce barriers to care and disparities in diagnosis and treatment. Over 25 percent of adults with Long Covid state that their symptoms significantly limit their daily activity, and the economic impact of lost wages due to Long Covid is estimated to be upwards of $200 billion per year.

The CARE for Long Covid Act seeks to improve research, provide resources, and increase access to care for those living with long-term COVID-19 symptoms. Use this form to contact your elected officials and ask them to cosponsor the CARE for Long Covid Act!
