- NIH Toolbox Instrumental Support Survey - change in instrumental support [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 month and 6 month ]Instrumental Support refers to the perception that people in one's social network are available to provide material or functional aid in completing daily tasks (such as making meals or providing transportation) if needed. This self-report measure for adults (ages 18 and above) is an 8-item calibrated scale.This study will use the measure to determine if people's instrumental support changes during a pandemic.
- UCLA (University of California - Los Angeles) 3-item Loneliness Scale - change in social isolation [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 month and 6 month ]A scale designed to measure one's subjective feelings of loneliness as well as feelings of social isolation. Participants rate each of the 3 items as hardly ever (score of "1"), some of the time (score of "2"), or often (score of "3"). The scores for each individual question can be added together to give you a possible range of scores from 3 to 9. The higher the score the more lonely the person will be. This study will use the measure to determine if people feel socially isolated during a pandemic.
