COVID Recovery Program in Marblehead, MA

The COVID-19 recovery process is unique for most patients; in fact, one of the most common questions we receive is, “How long is the COVID-19 recovery process?” According to the CDC, patients should begin to recover from COVID within 10-14 days. However, many COVID-19 survivors continue to face long-term health problems beyond this average time frame. Spaulding Rehabilitation in Marblehead welcomes patients who have received a positive laboratory diagnosis of COVID-19 and still continue to experience symptoms of COVID-19 post initial diagnosis and treatment.
