Recovering from COVID-19: Post viral-fatigue and conserving energy

Rehabilitation is quickly becoming a top priority in addressing the pandemic’s effects, and it’s critical for persons recovering from COVID-19 infection.

We’ve created three resources to help patients cope with post-viral tiredness and save energy while recovering from COVID-19. The Critical Care Society has endorsed these guidelines.

These guidelines are available in PDF format, which you may download and share with others who are recovering from COVID-19.
