Thank you for your interest in the COVID-19 Contact Network Study. Round 2 of the survey is now live, open to new participants and those that completed the survey in round 1. Please read the Participant Information Sheet which explains why this research is taking place and what will be expected from you if you decide to participate. This survey is completely anonymous so please answer questions as honestly as you can. Your answers are confidential and we will not be able to identify you.
The COVID-19 Contact Network Study
By better understanding how social contact patterns are changing in the UK, we can improve predictions of COVID-19 transmission.
The CoCoNet Study
The CoCoNet study aims to measure the social contact patterns of people in the UK during the pandemic, to understand how the spread of COVID-19 is affected by our social behaviour.
The results of the survey will be used to improve modelled predictions of COVID-19 transmission in the UK, and to help identify which restrictions could be lifted safely in the future. The research may also be used to inform contact tracing efforts and the NHS Test and Trace system.
This is an online anonymous survey which should only take about 5 - 10 minutes to complete. People of all ages and occupations who live in the UK are encouraged to take part. The survey asks participants questions about how often they leave their home, the number of people they encounter during a day and which types of locations they visit.
Should you feel concerned or distressed either as a result of taking part, or in the future, the following resources may help:
