As the COVID-19 pandemic has progressed, occupational therapy treatment and care for patients with COVID-19 has continued to evolve. Through the use of case studies, occupational therapists will share their experience following the progression of clients receiving occupational therapy for COVID-19. Specific treatment activities and outcomes in the settings of critical care, acute care, post-acute care, and outpatient care will be reviewed. 
Following this presentation, the practitioner will be able to:
•             Identify client factors and key areas of performance deficit that are central to COVID-19 illness, including hemodynamic and respiratory indicators of performance tolerance.
•             Describe treatment activities targeting foundational skills impacted by COVID-19 disease.
•             Describe treatment progression across the care continuum--from critical care, acute care, post-acute care, and outpatient care.
