Pediatric Long COVID Navigation Clinic

What is Long COVID?

This is one of the terms used to describe persistent or new symptoms that develop after a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19. According to the World Health Organization, these symptoms usually occur within 3 months of the initial infection and last for at least 2 months without another cause for the symptoms found. Common symptoms include tiredness, shortness of breath, “brain fog” or difficulty concentrating, dizziness, muscle or joint pain, weakness, and difficulty with exercise. These symptoms can be severe enough they affect your daily activities.

Other terms you may hear that describe these symptoms after COVID-19 infection include long-haul COVID, post-acute COVID 19 condition, post-acute sequelae of SARs CoV-2 infection (PASC), long-term effect of COVID, and chronic COVID.

About Us

The Pediatric Long COVID Navigation Clinic opened in April 2022 to support pediatric patients with Long COVID. We review the work-up patients have had thus far and help facilitate the evaluation to rule out other potential causes of a patient’s symptoms. To do this, we refer patients to specialist care as needed. We also assist in the management of symptoms with a goal of returning patients to regular activities and school.

This telehealth clinic can virtually see patients under 18 years old in Utah, Nevada, Idaho and Wyoming.

Patients need to be referred by their pediatrician or health care provider.
