Throughout the pandemic, the BMed Lab has been hard at work studying various behaviours during COVID-19. Studies investigate everything from children and youth’s adherence to the 24-hour movement guidelines, outdoor play opportunities, perceived physical activity transitions among adults, individual differences in perceived stress, perceived threat, and efficacy to follow government recommendations to slow the spread of the virus.

Currently we are still collaborating to study how people are adapting their hygiene behaviours due to the Coronavirus pandemic through brief surveys which can be accessed here. We are also recruiting individuals whose physical activity levels have been impacted by COVID-19 social distancing restrictions for a 6-week program delivered via an online intervention to support an active lifestyle. Email us at bml@uvic.ca if you are interested in participating.
