One of the guidances released from the Office for Civil Rights at Health and Human Services and Department of Justice explains that “that some individuals with long COVID may have a disability under various civil rights laws that entitle them to protection from discrimination.”
Ensuring that those suffering from long-COVID are receiving the support and resources they need and are protected against discrimination is imperative and a mission of the COVID Patient Recovery Alliance. The COVID Patient Recovery Alliance is a multi-sector group of organizations whose mission is to define, develop, and assist in implementing a national strategy to characterize, diagnose, ensure care for, and sustainably fund the full recovery of individuals with long-COVID.
