From COVID Stress Study Team:

The COVID-19 Stress and Health Study is a research study being carried out by the University of Nottingham and Kings College London exploring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the emotional and physical health of adults in the UK. The research team are keen to capture the effects of front-line workers within health and social care as well as the wider public.

Taking part is simple and involves two short (10 minute) online surveys: completed when participants sign-up and then again in 12 weeks time. Participants are also asked to take two small hair samples (at the same time points) to enable the measurement of the stress biomarker cortisol. More details about the study, including a link to the survey can be found at Recruitment is open now until the end of April 2020, to allow researchers to capture the early effects of the pandemic.
