This survey is being conducted to learn about the prevalence of COVID-19 symptoms and social distancing behavior in Canada. We are interested in learning about how education, income, employment, and flu-like symptoms are linked to social distancing and how these links change over time as provincial governments across Canada are implementing lockdown exit policies. The survey also includes questions about your mood and emotional state.
The results from this survey will only be used for academic research in order to help public health specialists and policymakers recommend effective measures over the coming days.
ELIGIBILITY TO PARTICIPATE
You may participate in this survey if:
- You are at least 18 years of age.
- You currently live in Canada.
If you consent to participate, you will be asked a few questions about your demographic background. You will then be asked about your health and the health status of your household members. You will also be asked about coronavirus symptoms, testing, social distancing behavior in your household and workplace, your mood and emotional state, and work status.
The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
Please invite each eligible person in your household to join in the fight against COVID-19 by completing the survey.
