The latest about COVID and its long term effects—a Wellness Wednesday discussion 

By Keisha Reynolds, MyCG Writer

There’s a lot of talk about COVID vaccines, the Delta Variant, and the ongoing impact to those who have had COVID and are still experiencing symptoms. Join Capt. John Iskander, chief of Preventive Medicine and Population Health for the Coast Guard as he discusses the latest findings of COVID from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Iskander will also discuss what we can do to help the members within our Coast Guard family as they face LONG COVID, the name given to the ongoing symptoms that millions have reported after suffering from the COVID-19 infection. The discussion will take place on Coast Guard Teams at 3 p.m., EDT. 

Wellness Wednesday is now hosted on Coast Guard Teams. You will only be able to access this forum from a Coast Guard workstation or you could call in via the following number: 410-874-6742, Conference ID: 600 234 437#. If you have questions or suggestions, you may e-mail us at wellnesswednesday@uscg.mil. Previous Wellness Wednesday recordings are available on the CG-11, CG Portal webpage.
