Opportunity to Engage in National Online Dialogue Regarding Long COVID’s Workplace Challenges

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Surgeon General invite the public to join in a national dialogue to understand the challenges related to long COVID-19 that impact workers and employers. Long COVID refers to new or long-term effects of the virus that can last weeks or months and can include issues such as shortness of breath, fatigue, heart palpitations, or headaches. Through this virtual event, the DOL “seeks to better understand workplace challenges of those experiencing new or lingering symptoms of COVID-19” and gain ideas to deal with the challenges and diminish the condition’s employment and financial impacts. Participants in the online discussion will share ideas, experiences, and possible solutions. For more information and to register to submit ideas, visit the webpage entitled “Understanding and Addressing the Workplace Challenges Related to Long COVID.”
