Attitudes and practices towards the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia: research study

The current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has seen governments implement a range of public health strategies to reduce community transmission of the virus. The most significant of these strategies is the social distancing rules that have been established and enforced to varying degrees in different Australian states, in addition to public health promotion campaigns regarding hygiene practices.

This current research study seeks to explore attitude and practices towards the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing rules and hygiene practices. Southern Queensland Rural Health are hoping to use the results of this study to explore how this pandemic has been communicated, and received and actioned by the Australian public.
