Per the notice below, the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) has issued updated resources on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and Long COVID in the workplace.

COVID-19, Long COVID and the Workplace: Resources from USDOL

As we continue to move through the COVID-19 pandemic, USDOL is committed to ensuring equitable access to key resources affecting the health and safety of America's workers and workplaces.  In that spirit, the USDOL Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) recently updated its online resource page on COVID-19 and Long COVID.  This Web page features quick links to resources for workers, employers, youth, and policymakers.  Among the specific resources for employers of all sizes are:

A number of the resources relate to Long COVID—a term that refers to a range of symptoms that can last weeks or months after a person is first infected with COVID-19.  As noted in an audiogram recorded by USDOL Secretary Marty Walsh, people experiencing symptoms of Long COVID may be eligible for accommodations to help them keep working during their recovery.  To learn more and explore these updated resources, go to DOL’s COVID-19 and Long COVID-19 webpage.
