Free Webinar – Long COVID: Rehabilitation and Return to Work Considerations

Long COVID is a condition in which people continue to experience symptoms for more than 3 months after a COVID-19 infection. According to a recent survey done by the Public Health Agency of Canada, 14.8% of people go on to develop Long COVID after a COVID-19 infection. Of these people, approximately half (47%) experience symptoms for more than 1 year and 21% say their symptoms are often or always limiting their daily activities. 74% of these people have missed work due to their symptoms.

Long COVID has a significant impact on people’s lives, and on the workplace. This presentation will help you understand Long COVID, the symptoms, best known practices for rehabilitation, and return to work considerations.
