*IES, impact of event scale; B, estimate of regression coefficient (a negative estimate indicates a negative association of the independent variable with the dependent variable); R2, proportion of variance in the dependent variable accounted for by the model. Boldface indicates statistical significance (p<0.05).
†Explicitness, completeness, unambiguity, confusion, and redundancy.
‡Twice a day temperature monitoring, temperature reporting, canceling trip, and postponing trip.
§Difficulties with monitoring, extra costs, fear of becoming infected, fear of infecting household members, household members fearing infection, fear that colleagues might be infected, restrictions in social life, tensions caused by the measures, tensions experienced by partners, and tensions experienced by children in the household.
