On May 7, 2020, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued additional answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about how employers should comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) during the coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. The additional FAQs, which address how employers may handle workplace issues for employees who are considered to be at high risk of serious illness from COVID-19, were added to guidance that the EEOC originally issued on March 18, 2020, and updated on April 9, 17, and 23, 2020. The existing guidance also addresses workplace accommodations, medical exams and other ADA-related issues.
