“There's still a lot of Coloradans with long COVID,” said Dr. Sarah Jolley, the medical director of the UCHealth Post-COVID ICU Clinic

“Roughly between 250,000 to 600,000 Coloradans are living with long COVID currently,” Jolley said. “The risk for long COVID is still very much there and we don't really understand who gets it and why.”

She says perhaps 10 percent of people who’ve caught the virus develop chronic symptoms. 

One challenge is pinpointing what exact symptoms long COVID causes, said infectious disease Dr. Kristine Erlandson
