Long Covid

Some people who contract coronavirus (Covid-19) do not fully recover for months, which is known as Long Covid.

The most common symptoms of Long Covid are fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle pains, chest pains, palpitations, brain fog, and anxiety.  

People in Leeds who are struggling with ongoing coronavirus symptoms should consult their GP.

Supporting good mental health

During this time, you may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious, or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you. These are all common reactions to the difficult situation we face, and it is okay to feel this way. Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same – it can change as circumstances change and as you move through different stages of your life. It’s important to look after your mental health.  


In Leeds, there is a range of mental health training, including suicide prevention, Psychological First Aid, and mental health awareness. These courses are delivered by different partners in the city. Details can be found in the Mental health training section of Public health priority based training.

Evidence indicates that sleep has become a concern for lots of people so UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA)’s Every Mind Matters campaign have created sleep resources to help.  

Practicing the Five Ways to Wellbeing can help to focus on ways to combat loneliness and improve our mental health, through connecting with others; being active; taking notice of what's around us; learning new things; and giving.  

Suicide prevention

New Suicide Prevention Guidelines for frontline workers and volunteers, have been produced locally to help them feel equipped to support anyone they have concerns about. The production of these new guidelines is in response to feedback from frontline workers and new volunteers reporting to us that they are receiving increasingly difficult calls about suicide from members of the public, particularly during the time of Covid-19 pandemic. Key members of the Leeds Strategic Suicide Prevention Group were involved in producing them.  

If you or someone you know has been bereaved by suicide, support is available from Leeds Suicide Bereavement service or, for those in other parts of West Yorkshire, from the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Suicide Bereavement Service. Queries can be directed to Leeds Mind reception by calling 0113 305 5800 or emailing for the Leeds service or for the West Yorkshire service.

Vitamin D

Around one in five people in the UK have low levels of vitamin D, especially older adults, pregnant and breastfeeding people, infants, and people with darker skin. Vitamin D is essential for good health. It affects people’s bones, teeth, and muscles as well as mental health and immune systems. A lack of vitamin D can lead to painful bone health conditions in both children and adults and increased risk of falls.  

Since it is difficult to get vitamin D from sunlight and diet alone, all adults should consider taking a daily supplement during the autumn and winter months. For people who are at risk of vitamin D deficiency, supplements may be recommended all year round.  

This short video highlights the importance of vitamin D and who is at risk of low levels:  


Read more information about Vitamin D and COVID-19 and look at the BDA Food Fact Sheet: Vitamin D. Additional information on Vitamin D: supplement use in specific population groups.

Smoking and COVID-19 risk

An UCL rapid evidence review has been published assessing the association of smoking status with coronavirus infection, hospitalisation and mortality.  

The review concludes that “across 102 studies, there is substantial uncertainty about the associations of smoking with COVID-19 outcomes. Smoking cessation remains a public health priority and high-quality smoking cessation advice including recommendations to use alternative nicotine products should form part of public health efforts during this pandemic”.  

Government guidance has been issued providing advice for users of a range of tobacco products.  

Stopping smoking - supporting quitters

COVID-19 has motivated many smokers to quit. People are more aware of the need to protect their health and with the pandemic restrictions disrupting routines, people are embracing the opportunity to make changes to their behaviour. In response, many healthcare and public health practitioners have seized this opportunity to help people stop smoking and an estimated one million people have quit smoking in the UK since the pandemic hit.  

However, many of these are short-term quits, we need to sustain the momentum to support those who have quit to stay quit, and to encourage others to follow.  

A recent Cochrane review reported the strong link between stopping smoking and improved mental health and wellbeing. The authors found that compared with people who continued to smoke, people who stopped smoking showed a significant reduction in anxiety, depression and stress and an improvement in positive feelings and mental wellbeing.  

The improvements were seen across all groups, including those diagnosed with a mental health condition. This is important, given that people with mental health conditions are more likely to smoke than the general public and smoking rates increase with the severity of illness. This now feels even more significant as we start to recover from the effects COVID-19 especially Mental Health.  

Smokefree Action has published set of frequently asked questions (FAQs), designed to answer questions people may have about quitting smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read or download Smokefree Action's 'Quit For Covid' FAQs PDF (PDF, 192KB).  

People in Leeds who want to stop smoking can get support from One You Leeds. Additional information on quitting smoking can be found at Today is the Day.

Seasonal Health (Summer and Winter planning)

Every year there is a National Heatwave Plan for England and a Cold Weather Plan for England, which describes the actions we can take to reduce the negative impact of hot and cold weather.  

During the summer period, the Met Office may forecast heatwaves that triggers response levels from the NHS, Government and public health system, and communicates risks. Each alert level triggers a series of appropriate actions detailed in the Heatwave Plan.  

Although there are several factors contributing to winter illness and death, in many cases simple preventative action could avoid many of the deaths, illnesses and injuries associated with the cold. Many of these measures need to be planned and undertaken in advance of cold weather.  

Met Office Weather Alerts

The Met Office offers email alerts about specific weather topic areas. When you receive an alert you can follow the hyperlink in the email, taking you to the Met Office's weather warnings page which shows full details of the warning and a map of the areas where the warning applies.  

Subscribe to Met Office email alerts   

Who is at most risk?

Public Health takes a life course approach and aims to increase the effectiveness of interventions throughout a person's life. It focuses on a healthy start and targets people at critical periods when they are more vulnerable to the effects of hot and cold weather e.g. pregnancy and older age.  

Hot and cold weather presents risks to certain groups listed below. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic can add and pose additional risk to those who are clinically and socially vulnerable, including:  

  • pregnant women
  • people living with frailty
  • people with long term conditions
  • those who are extremely clinically vulnerable
  • children under the age of 5
