COVID-19 Communication Ecologies: Interpersonal, Familial, and Organizational Information Sources


COVID-19 Communication Ecologies include the local, state, national, and international communication resources that individuals use to understand and cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 communication resources can include family and friends, local organizations, news organizations, and government agencies. This Working Group examines the structure of COVID-19 communication ecologies to understand how different ecologies influence COVID-19 risk perceptions and protective actions, physical and mental health, and social connections.
