My COVID Recovery

Information and resources to help Nova Scotians understand and manage their health after having COVID-19.

Welcome to My COVID Recovery NS - your source of health information after having COVID-19.

 

Recovering from COVID-19 is different for everyone. It does not matter how old you are or how healthy you were before COVID-19. Some people feel better in a few weeks. For others, it may take months. Research is still being done and there is a lot that we still do not know. We want to support you with the most up-to-date information for managing your health.

 

Consider completing the My COVID Recovery Website Feedback (nshealth.ca) survey to let us know if your symptoms are not listed. This will help us to improve the information on this website.

My COVID Recovery Website Feedback

 

 

This website provides information and resources to help you understand and manage your health after having COVID-19. It might also help your family, friends and caregivers understand what you are going through. The website contains a list of symptoms commonly experienced after COVID-19. We will continue to provide more resources and supports as we learn more about managing post-COVID symptoms and health issues.

You are not alone. Your experience after COVID-19 may feel different than the symptoms described in this website.
