EEOC Recognizes "Long COVID" as a Covered Disability under the ADA

On September 9, 2021, the EEOC updated its COVID-19 guidance by recognizing that “long COVID” may now be a covered disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act, in certain circumstances. The EEOC agrees with the analysis of “long COVID” by the Departments of Health and Human Services and Justice in their “Guidance on ‘Long COVID’ as a Disability Under the ADA, Section 504, and Section 1557.” EEOC technical assistance about COVID-19 and ADA “disability” in the employment context will be released in the coming weeks. Contact the Law Office for assistance in implementing legally effective COVID-19 compliance programs.
