A survey with 1,084 adults in April this year on physical activity and sedentary behaviour during the pandemic found that the majority of Australians didn’t meet suggested physical activity and sedentary behaviour guidelines. Can we learn from this?
As we continue to be inundated with reports of COVID-19 cases, recommendations and the latest updates on restrictions, SCRUB has been collecting data on the personal protective behaviours Australians are maintaining. Here are some findings from Wave 4.
Data from wave 3 of our COVID-19 Responses to Understand Behaviour (SCRUB) study show how protective behaviours, such as hand-washing, are dynamically changing over time and what policymakers should do prevent or address more risky behaviour.
