As we continue to move through the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is committed to ensuring equitable access to key resources affecting the health and safety of America’s workers and workplaces. In that spirit, the department’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) recently updated its online resource page on COVID-19 and Long COVID.
This webpage 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 U.S. Secretary of Labor 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, visit DOL’s COVID-19 and Long COVID-19 webpage.
