Recovering from COVID

As people recover from COVID-19 they may still feel some impact on their body and mind. For some people, COVID-19 can cause symptoms that last weeks or months after the infection has gone. This is sometimes called post-COVID-19 syndrome or "long-COVID".

There is lots of support to help people recover from COVID and the information on the Wakefield Council website can be used by:

  • Individuals to help manage their recovery and signpost to sources of information and support.
  • Anyone working in the community to help provide information and support for the people they work with and to signpost to sources of information and help.

COVID-19 Community Champions 

A COVID-19 Community Champion is someone who is keen to help us in the fight against COVID-19.  We are looking for volunteers who have a network of people they can work with (simply share messages with via email, WhatsApp or whatever method works best).  Find out more about becoming a COVID-19 Community Champion on the Wakefield Council website.  This web page also contains recordings of online Zoom meetings about COVID-19.
