Cleveland’s University Hospitals wants to learn more about long COVID and is looking for participants to help. 

Long COVID can last for months after an initial COVID infection causing sufferers to experience a myriad of issues including breathing problems, brain fog, and fatigue, among others.

News 5 reports that the study being helmed by University Hospitals' Clinical Research Center will bring better understanding to the long term effects of COVID and who has the greatest risk of being affected. Participants would be followed for up to four years, giving blood samples and other specimens, as well as answering questionnaires every few months. 

Researchers note that getting a wide variety of participants is important because the disease affects everyone differently. 

To qualify as a participant you must be 18 years and older and meet the following criteria

  • Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 28 days.
  • Individuals who believe they were infected with COVID-19 in the past 28 days.
  • Individuals who have never been infected with or tested positive for COVID-19.
