Round Three - July 2020
The Social contours and COVID-19 Project
Using metrics and data to drive a phase-in of reintegration for society and the economy
The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world upside-down in so many ways. In Saskatchewan, as in many countries, residents have helped to slow the spread of the virus by changing their behaviour, following the instructions of public health authorities. At this point in the pandemic, we need to figure out how to return to our former ways of life, without increasing the number of cases. The information we are asking for in this questionnaire will help us do this. Your answers will help us better understand how we could contain the virus and at the same time resume our normal lives.
It should take you about 15 minutes to complete this questionnaire, which is hosted by Voxco, a Canadian-owned and managed company whose data is securely stored in Canada.
This questionnaire has been created by a multinational team of researchers from diverse fields and different institutions, including the University of Saskatchewan.
