COVID-19 Study

The purpose of this study is to collect information on people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours related to Coronavirus disease or “COVID-19.”

This information will help us better understand how people deal with the risk of becoming infected with the virus, and how information about the virus and disease can best be delivered to the public. If you agree to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete a series of online surveys with questions about your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in addition to questions about your personality and mood.

This study is being conducted by a team of international researchers led by Dr. Anita DeLongis. The team includes Dr. Nancy Sin at the University of British Columbia and Dr. Debra Umberson at the University of Texas at Austin.
