The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be challenging to many scientists and physicians due to its rapid spread and long lasting effects. The objective of this study is to determine whether high levels of psychological distress leads to increased risk of developing post-COVID-19 conditions (long COVID). A total of 55 participants from a small family practice in New York State were the sample for this study. Patient charts were reviewed to gather PHQ-9 scores and look for diagnoses of long COVID symptoms. The results did not reveal any significant relationship between mental health conditions and long COVID symptomatology.
