President Joe Biden announced Monday new guidance adding long-term COVID-19 to be considered a disability under federal civil rights laws.
“Many Americans who seemingly recover from the virus still face lingering challenges like breathing problems, brain fog, chronic pain and fatigue. These conditions can sometimes…rise to the level of a disability,” Biden said.
“So we’re bringing agencies together to make sure Americans with long-COVID who have a disability have access to the rights and resources that are due under the disability law,” he added.
The president also signed a proclamation marking the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and reaffirming his commitment to it.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
