The primary aim of this study is to obtain observational physiological signals from patients previously discharged from hospitalization at Tufts Medical Center between 2019 to present (est enrollment starting in June 2022) with positive diagnosis of COVID-19 to further our understanding and characterization of Long COVID-19 syndrome using combined medical histories and continuous physiological signals captured through wearable devices such as the Oura Ring, Fitbit, AliveCor KardiaMobile, and Samsung Watch3 type devices. 

Study details

Inclusion Criteria
