There are no formal guidelines for diagnosing Long Covid, creating even more obstacles for doctors and patients. All Covid clinics require a positive PCR test to access support, effectively neglecting an entire subset of individuals who could not access or were refused testing in the early months of the pandemics. They may take a doctors referral, but without guidelines for doctors to follow, patients are not getting the diagnosis they need.
Finding help and treatment in Canada can be extremely difficult. There is very little information, no guidelines or consensus to guide patients or physicians.
We’re here to change that.
