Public health researchers are hoping to find out how people change their behaviour and are hoping it will give governments a greater insight into public health should anything similar happen in the future.

Anyone in the UK aged 18 or over and is self-isolating is able to take part. This includes individuals who are self-isolating after displaying symptoms of coronavirus infection, people who are self-isolating due to their age or underlying medical conditions, as well as anyone in the wider community who is no longer traveling to work due to recent social distancing restrictions.”
