About the webinar:
How do we approach the office setting in the next year or two with continued threats from COVID and other viruses? How do we help staff and clients accommodate those with chronic COVID which may affect up to 25% of persons who have had COVID? Does the Americans with Disabilities Act cover those with COVID-related symptoms? What are some effective ways for a disability management specialist or a case manager to open/maintain a productive dialogue with an employer who has shown reluctance to be flexible toward making 'reasonable' Covid-related accommodations? As long-haul Covid seems to present a constantly changing set of physical and emotional impacts how does the disability management specialist or case manager maintain an appropriate level of connection with their clients in order to keep current with their changing conditions and explore additional remedies and resources? Speakers will address these and other issues.

Learning outcomes:

  1. Describe COVID-19 long-hauler syndrome;
