Rapid survey to assess knowledge, attitudes and behaviours around misinformation, personal protection and public health measures for COVID-19 in BC

Principal Investigator: 

We plan to conduct a rapid evidence survey to proactively address the “infodemic” in British Columbia related to COVID-19. We will survey 3000 British Columbians to understand their knowledge, attitudes and reported behaviours related to COVID-19 misinformation and communication. The survey participants will reflect the diversity of British Columbians as we proactively seek feedback from Indigenous communities, as well as ethnically Chinese and South East Asian communities. This gives us an opportunity to assess our communication strategies while the crisis is ongoing and provide the right information to the right audiences in the right way at the right time.
