Are you a UK resident, currently self-isolating due to COVID-19/Corona virus infection? 

If so, we invite you to participate in a survey to help us understand the impact of self-isolation on health and wellbeing. 

By self-isolation we mean the situation where an individual has displayed symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild and either has been instructed by health authorities or has chosen not to leave their home for 7 or more days, or only left for essential activities such as food shopping or visit to the pharmacist or health professional, from when symptoms started. Moreover, self-isolation may include those choosing to self-isolate for any other reason relating to COVID-19 such as at risk because of underlying medical condition, of an older age, or has a family member who falls into the at-risk category of severe virus symptoms.
