Greetings. We are conducting research into people’s reactions to measures taken to mitigate the spread of the 2019-20 coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the disease caused by it, Covid-19. In particular, we are interested in responses to social distancing, shelter-in-place practices, self-quarantine, and self-isolation.


We will use an online survey to elicit responses to demographic, psychological, and context questions, and we will also ask participants to engage in free writing about their reactions and experiences to the measures being taken to distance or isolate people from each other. In the free writing area, you are welcome to repurpose your own existing social media posts, if they are relevant, or write something new in response to our writing prompts. This research consists of a survey of 30 questions that will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. You must be 18 years of age or older to fill out the survey. Thanks for considering being part of this!
