USC Study Highlights Early Fatigue with Health Orders (KCET)

KCET  featured a study by Jung Ki Kim and Eileen Crimmins on how people of all ages grew tired of complying with such rules as early as two months into the pandemic. “It is encouraging to observe older people taking more preventive personal behaviors as the pandemic progressed as this may have alleviated their risk of infection,” Kim said. “However, at the same time, it is concerning that people increased risky social behaviors over time, particularly older people, who could have more adverse consequences from meeting with family and friends.”
