A new study will explore how people of different ages perceive the risk of getting COVID-19.
The study, conducted by the Brain and Body Lab at the University of Waterloo, is asking people of different age groups how vulnerable they believe they are to COVID-19. It will look at what behaviours people are acting on to mitigate the risk of getting the virus – like wearing a mask or not – and how they perceive other age groups to be behaving.
Before the pandemic, when we occupied the same physical space as others, we paid little attention to them. Now, under the current circumstances, we’re more attentive to each other — we’re actually less socially distant while being more physically distant.
Every year, exceptional co-op students from each Faculty are recognized by the University of Waterloo for their contribution to their employer, their community and the further development of experiential education.
