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.
