Post COVID-19 Care

Support patients who were infected with COVID-19 and who experienced serious disease to manage their condition over time.
Post COVID-19 recovery clinics are designed to see patients at or following 12 weeks post-symptom onset and are not meant to address acute concerns.

Support for health professionals

Physicians and nurse practitioners can request advice on post-COVID-19 care from an internal medicine specialist through:

  • The Rapid Access to Specialist Consultation (RACE) app, which is for urgent questions that require a call back within 2 hours. RACE is staffed Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. The specialty is listed as “COVID – GIM Post Infection Care”. See http://www.raceconnect.ca/race-app/.
  • electronic Consultative Access to Specialist Expertise (eCASE), which offers e-consults within 7 days. Users can submit questions, patient history and attachments via a secure messaging app. The specialty is listed as “Post-COVID-19 Care”. See http://www.raceconnect.ca/ecase/.

Clinic referral process 

To refer a patient to a post-COVID-19 recovery clinic, please fill out the referral form and fax it to the chosen clinic. 
 
Please note that referrals will only be accepted for:
  • Confirmed COVID-19 positive (NAAT or serology) or official epi-linked cases
  • Individuals who were symptomatic between January and May 2020, and did not have access to a COVID-19 test
If your patient does not have a positive COVID-19 swab, they will require a positive serology test to be accepted into the Post-COVID-19 Recovery Clinic. However, referrals will be accepted for patients who were ill between January and May 2020 –  even without a positive test – because testing was less accessible during the early stages of the pandemic.
