For some patients who have had COVID-19, symptoms of the disease may last long after the infection is over. Long-haulers syndrome due to COVID-19 could include profound fatigue, shortness of breath, and long-term neurological complaints, including headache, dizziness, or weakness. Mayo Clinic has launched the COVID Activity Rehabilitation Program, or CARP, to help these patients return to daily life and work. CARP is not just for folks who are trying to get back to work, but for anyone trying to get back to their baseline life. 
 
In this episode, Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn, a Mayo Clinic preventive, occupational and aerospace medicine specialist who leads the CARP program, gives an overview of COVID long haulers and how post-COVID symptoms affects patients. He also shares the goals and results of Mayo Clinic CARP program.
